Digital Programming, 2020-2021 Season -- digital programming is available on our Youtube Channel.
The Gospel of Friar Tuck
This brand new, original radio play by Mike Nichols tells the story of Friar Tuck's arrival in Nottingham and his first encounters with the famous outlaw Robin Hood. In Tudor England, the royal court had a tradition of staging Robin Hood plays for May Day celebrations. One anecdote even tells of King Henry VIII himself appearing as the outlaw. We are happy to continue that tradition with this new script inspired by tales from traditional Robin Hood ballads. The production will appear in two episodes. Episode One is already available, and Episode Two will be released in late June. This production features actors Benjamin Curley, Charles Decker, Mike Dodge, JM Ethridge, Jenni Harbour, Troy Harvey, Jackie Jorgenson, Scott Lange, Chad Marriott, Amber Miller, Julia Steudle, Julia Verstraete, and Seraphina Zorn.
