Brelby Theatre Company will open “Wolves of Sherwood,” written by Chelsea Frandsen, with an opening show 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 10 on its Glendale stage at 7154 N. 58th Drive.

John Perovich directs the production, with fight choreography by Brian Maticic.

“Most incarnations of Robin Hood end when Richard comes home and we believe that Robin and Marion are living happily ever after. But what happens after Happily Ever After?,” the theatre states. “In ‘Wolves of Sherwood,’ Richard the Lionheart is dead. Robin Hood and Marion have a son, Cassian, intent on making his own legacy. Friar Tuck is the pseudonym of a spy for the outlaws. Sir Guy of Gisbourne has brought his daughter, Ravenna, to Nottingham to make a marriage of alliance with Sheriff Josselin DeClaire. And DeClaire has hired an Assassin to annihilate the outlaws in Sherwood once and for all.”

The production runs through Sunday, May 26.

The Brelby Theatre Company was founded by Mr. Maticic and Shelby Brimhall (now Shelby Maticic) in 2009 before it opened its doors four years later. Brelby moved to its current location in the Catlin Court District of Historic Downtown in 2016.
