Something For The Weekend: Fri 29 November – Sun 1 December

1. MurleyDance – Triple Bill – Fri 29 – Sat 30 November

Following 21 back-to-back shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, London-based MurleyDance embark on their first UK tour presenting a triple bill programme.

Triple Bill includes: La Peau by David Murley; Five Women Wearing the Same Dress by Gwyn Emberton; and a new première by up-and-coming Australian choreographer Briar Adams. The works cover all aspects of the human flesh from sex to death in Murley’s La Peau, accompanied by British composer Patrick Hawes’s music. And, help one lost individual find out what kind of woman they really are in the midst of a posh wedding in Emberton’s Five Women Wearing the Same Dress. Adams’s new work promises to captivate with her Wheeldon-like movement.

MurleyDance fuse classical ballet and theatrical overtones to provide audiences with a thought-provoking, and often amusing, evening of entertainment.

2. Wanted! Robin Hood – Starts Fri 29 November

In the city of Nottingham, a fearsome soldier returns home from war and a feisty young maiden travels towards her uncertain future. Strict laws must be obeyed on pain of death, and an ancient promise must be kept no matter what the consequence. But deep in the Forest of Sherwood, a band of lionhearted outlaws are gathering, ready to do battle in the name of vengeance and love.

A thrilling combination of adventure, comedy, music and daredevil fighting, it promises to be a magical adventure for everyone aged six and above.

Wanted! Robin Hood is a brand new bold adaptation of the classic tale, written by Charles Way whose imaginative and award-winning family plays have been performed all over the world. Director Amy Leach and designer Hayley Grindle were the creative team behind last year’s critically acclaimed production of Arabian Nights and return to produce a magical winter treat for all.

Wanted! Robin Hood contains some scary scenes (and some very funny ones too). Suitable for children aged 6+ only.
