Ha Ha Hood! And The Prince of Leaves sees comedy stars Su Pollard and Cannon and Ball team up for a side splitting take on the tale of Robin Hood and his merry men.

The show, is the latest laugh-out-loud production from the Ha Ha! team following Ha Ha Holmes!, Ha Ha Hitler! and Ha Ha Hamlet!

Created by Ben Langley, who also takes on the role of Robin, Ha Ha Hood! Prince of Leaves gallops into action at the Embassy Threatre, Skegness later this month.

Ten years after a messy divorce Robin and Marian are forced back together to fight the Sheriff of Nottingham once more. Tommy Cannon takes on the role of the evil sheriff and Little John while Bobby Ball, doubles up as Friar Tuck and Guy of Gisborne.

Su, who starred as scatty chamber maid Peggy in 1980s hit BBC sitcom ‘Hi-de-Hi,’ said: “My Marian is very different. After her divorce from Robin 10 years ago she thought ‘get a proper job’, so she is currently working as an NHS nurse at the Nottingham Infirmary.

She added: “Ha Ha! shows are so successful because even though they are parodies the subjects are still treated with respect.”

Ha Ha Hood! - Prince of Leaves is at the Embassy Theatre on Saturday, October 25. Tickets, £20, children £10, are available on 0845 674 0505 or www.embassytheatre.co.uk.
