What the reviewers are saying about ROBIN HOOD...


"This self-penned version of 'Robin Hood' has elements of 'Into the Woods' both literally (stunning outdoor location) and metaphorically, with familiar fairy tales and stories woven into the more traditional story of good vs evil, with all the yarns tied up at the end."

"The script was action-packed..."

"There were lots of clever elements, the script was great and the show flowed well."

Rebecca Case - Daily Echo/Hants Chronicle - 14 July 2016

PRESS RELEASE - Woody Allen's Shark a collection of short plays about relationships by Winchester playwright Jonathan Edgington, has recently been published on Kindle. Five of the plays had local premieres at The Chesil Theatre (Winchester), The Berry Theatre (Hedge End) and The Maskers Theatre (Southampton). One play was premiered in Newcastle and another in Indiana in the USA.  Jonathan said “I’m really excited that my plays have been published.  There are hardly any collections of short new plays on Kindle and I’m hoping that Woody Allen’s Shark will do well.  Several of the plays began life in local theatres and it’s great to see them available on Kindle on a worldwide basis”. The plays’ rather unusual title is inspired by the line from Woody Allen’s 1977 film Annie Hall “A relationship, I think, is like a shark, you know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark.Woody Allen’s Shark is currently available on Kindle at the bargain introductory price of £0.99!
