Join the gang this Christmas as Exeter Little Theatre Company (ELTC) get ready to hit bullseye once again with their retelling of the classic story Robin Hood.

Head to Sherwood Forest and meet Robin and his Merry Men, outlaws robbing the rich and always landing themselves in trouble because of their terrible plans.

Trying to keep them in line are Maid Marian and her Girlpower Gang, but the girls will have their work cut out for them unless both groups learn to work together to take on Nottingham’s meanest Snotty Notty and Sir Guy.

Snotty is the Sheriff of Nottingham...

ELTC return to Exeter’s Barnfield Theatre this September to bring to life Ronald Harwood’s The Dresser, which captures the drama and relationships behind the scenes of a touring theatre company during World War II.

Taking centre stage is Sir (David Gunn-Johnson), the last of the great, but dying breed of English actor-mangers. However, when he arrives at the theatre in a bad shape and unsure what play his company are performing, or his...

Taking centre stage is Sir (David Gunn-Johnson), the last of the great, but dying breed of English actor-mangers. However, when he arrives at the theatre in a bad shape and unsure what play his company are performing, or his lines, he must rely on his trusted dresser Norman (Dave Hill) and fellow actors to get him on stage.

René is also hiding two British airmen and is endeavouring, with the help of the French Resistance, to repatriate them. However, communications with London through a wireless in disguise add to the many embarrassments...
