Touring troupe leads outdoor arts revival with family fun, greener touring, and a riotous summer of theatre

 

Touring theatre troupe The Three Inch Fools have announced their biggest summer yet, with three new productions that will between them visit over 80 historic and notable locations across the UK. The company will also be expanding their work in schools up and down the country and will pilot a new Arts Council-funded project to make their touring model more sustainable.

As theatre recovers from a difficult year and attention turns once again to the outdoors, the Three Inch Fools are expanding their output to bring first-class touring theatre to more people than ever before. The Fools will be visiting venues including Sandringham Estate, Knebworth House, Glamis Castle, Southwark Cathedral, and many National Trust properties and other historic locations.

Three Inch Fools Co-Founder and Producer James Hyde said: “After a challenging 12 months, and a brief post-lockdown tour last summer, we knew we had to get back on the road and re-ignite theatre in the open air.  This year we wanted to re-open our summer of theatre with a bang – we have two lively Shakespeare plays full of fun and farce, plus our very first non-Shakespearean production, a calamitous reimagining of legendary folktale Robin Hood, and new sustainability goals to make sure that our work is fit for the future.”

 

Robin Hood Tour

 

In Robin Hood, five actors gather beneath the Major Oak to tell the story of Britain’s best-known folktale. The only problem is: no one can quite remember the story, and so chaos ensues as each actor battles to tell their own version of the legendary tale. After six years of touring, Robin Hood will be the Fools’ first non-Shakespearian production. This brand new version of the well-known story has been written by Stephen Hyde (The Marriage of Kim K, Guy: The Musical), and is directed by Sean Turner (assoc. dir. The Play That Goes Wrong, dir. No Villain), and will see the company expand their theatrical offer for families and younger audiences.
