Robin Hood & Pedlar

We had this role play in school which had to adapted from an existing story. I chose to think out of the box and adapted it from a ballad. It is from one of Robin Hood's tales. I have added, altered and deleted a few dialogues and have added how to speak a particular line and what actions are needed when.

My teacher loved it; hoping you too!

Robin Hood & Pedlar

  1. 1. Robin Hood & Pedlar Robin Hood is practising sword-fighting when Pedlar arrives by boat. Both take a glance at each other. Pedlar is about to leave when Robin asks him, R: “O foreign man, what thy daily grind? You seem to be a Pedlar to me.” P: “Yes, maybe, surely!” R: “O pedlar, O pedlar; what is in that you’re carrying? Something that is indispensable to me?” P: “My pack has 8 feathered hats and 5 leopard skin cloaks! Just unsure how they can be of essence to you.” Robin thinks for a while. R: “That shouldn’t be your interest right. Have you heard of the popular local phrase ‘Sharing is caring’? Then give your pack to me. I’ll make great use of it!”<Say this politely> P: “The land I come from has the phrase ‘You must fight to achieve something’” R: “Very well, then”. Both unsheathe their swords. They keep fighting till both plead to each other to stop. R: “Well I must say you do have some great talent and skills. Where did you learn them and who breathed them into you?” P: “It’s original and self-invented.” R: “Let’s commence by telling each other our names. I am Robin Hood of the Merry Men and I’m an outlaw. I rob the rich and give it to the poor. What is thy sobriquet?” P: “Sounds like an enthusiastic and interesting interest! I’m Mayhew Rys of Guillot-en- Roissy and seeking asylum sanctuary from the royal forces.” R: “Ah! You’re the one who was framed for murder by the rancorous king. You’re a hero among the Merry Men and the eleemosynary countrypeople. If you wish to prove yourself, join the Merry Men” Pedlar joins them and curtains draw as he and Robin are practising sword-fighting.
