ACT ONE: Women and children are being terrorized by Sir Guy of Gisborne, evil henchman to the Sheriff of Nottingham. When the women don't comply with Gisborne's orders, the soldiers ransack their village whilst making terrible threats at what hardships lie ahead. Out of fear for their lives, the women and children evacuate the village and set out to find their men—who are hidden in Sherwood Forest. Upon hearing of the villager's defiance, the Sheriff swears ultimate vengeance whilst fantasizing about his own ascent to the throne of England. Robin of Locksley happens upon the male villagers, now outlaws of Nottingham, while on his way through Sherwood Forest. Robin is particularly stirred to hear of the Sheriff’s impending ‘forced’ marriage to his childhood sweetheart, Maid Marian, and vows to lead the Outlaws in a courageous attempt to restore order while in the process rescuing his true love from the Sheriff’s clutches.
 
ACT TWO: After rescuing the women and children from the Sheriff's soldiers, Robin reunites the women with their Outlaw men. The Outlaws led by Robin set off to Nottingham to take back their freedom. Under the guise of beggars, they attend the Silver Arrow Show. When Robin wins the archery contest the Outlaws quickly find out that this was a trap set by the Sheriff and Gisborne. Pandemonium ensues with the Outlaws barely escaping the predicament alive. The Sheriff in a moment of utter rage announces that he and Marian will be married the following day. Robin and the Outlaws gatecrash the wedding and the Sheriff and Robin engage in a bitter sword fight to the death, at which Robin prevails. King Richard returns to restore order to his kingdom, leaving his people to rejoice in their newly found freedom from the tyrannical yet amusing Sheriff of Nottingham.
