'Robin Hood: The Truth Behind The Green Tights'

 by David Neilson

"Feared by the bad, loved by the good" goes the song about Robin Hood, but in the case of
Albert Ross, the distinction is not quite so clear-cut. For Albert is a coward, transferring his
allegiance from Merry Men to Sheriff and back again at the drop of a hat - or rather, at the point
of a sword. All of which lands Albert, his wife, Robin and Maid Marian in some very awkward
situations... This version by David Neilson offers a comedic retelling of the well-loved tale of Robin
Hood, portraying the hero in a different light.
