Town Crier

Oh yeah, oh yeah! It's 11 O Clock and all is not well. Your lord and Master, the Sheriff of Nottingham is cross " very, very cross! In fact he is so cross he didn't finish his favourite pudding prunes and custard. Just listen to him.

SCENE 1

(Sheriff's palace)

Sheriff

I am cross, I tell you " cross, cross, cross!!!

Servant

Calm down my lord. Pray what is the matter?

Servant

Don't you tell me to calm down. I'll have you flogged to within an inch of your life. If I want to be cross, I can be cross! Oh, Oh! Here comes mother.

(Enter Sheriff's mother)

Mother

What on earth's going on? Is that you shouting Alphonse? And you haven't eaten your prunes, you'll be constipated for days. Whatever's the matter?

Sheriff

It's that Robin Hood. I hate him. I want to kill him mother.

Mother

Why my precious?

Sheriff

Well you know I like to tax the poor. I send my soldiers out to get the money but when they go through Sherwood Forest they get attacked by Robin Hood and his men. The money is stolen and given back to the poor. It's an outrage.

Mother

That must be why he is called Robin.

Sheriff

Why?

Mother

Because he likes robin' you. Ha ha ha.

Sheriff

It's not funny. If I don't get my money then there'll be no more jewels for you or shopping holidays to London!

Mother

Then we must stop him quickly! We must think of a clever plan. I will enjoy watching him hang. Leave it to me.

SCENE 2

Town Crier

Hello everyone. How did you find me? Have you come to join me? Well you'd better meet the others. The more the merrier! Come and say hello!
