CHARACTER FEATURE: MARIAN

In so many versions of this story Marian is characterized as the love interest of Robin Hood, the shepherdess of May Day, or even the personification of the Virgin Mary. In Trademark's telling we are presented with a character who embodies raw strength, compassion, and resourcefulness.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VERSION OF ROBIN HOOD TO DATE?

My mind immediately goes to the Disney cartoon. My brother and I wore out that VHS growing up.

ON DEVELOPING MARIAN

In so many versions of this story Marian is characterized as the love interest of Robin Hood, the shepherdess of May Day, or even the personification of the Virgin Mary. In Trademark's telling we are presented with a character who embodies raw strength, compassion, and resourcefulness. I am thrilled to be discovering how Marian functions in this world as a powerful female figure in a traditionally male dominated story.

HOW IS WORKING WITH TRADEMARK?

What an honor to be a part of Trademark's inaugural production! Having worked with Tyler and Tyler on Jonah and the Whale with 7th House I knew that their creativity and passion for collaboration would be highlights in this process. Developing new work is always exciting, always challenging, and Trademark is focused on creating an exceptional piece of theatre. I am so thrilled to be in the room as it's happening.

ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS

We all have an image or story that comes to mind when we hear the name Robin Hood. This adaptation brings human nature to the forefront in a world that is both ethereal and violent, imaginative and rooted in dark reality. This is a story people won't want to miss.
