At this summer’s outdoor, Grand Tent show, the audience will be rounded up for a romp in true Festival Players style. The Notorious Right Robert and his Robber Bride by Sean Dixon is a Bonnie and Clyde tale set in 1930’s wildwoods Canada. We find ourselves in the fictional one-horse town of Chickabiddy. Right Robert, a wanna-be bad guy, decides that robbing folks is the best way to make a name for himself. He happens upon Jenny Lundy, a poor farm girl with big dreams of her own. Their chance meeting sets them on a hilarious journey of crime and infamy… and the rest is cops and robbers history.
The Notorious Right Robert and his Robber Bride is a joyous ride, full of car chases and gunfights, unrequited love and idealism, and funny as all get-out. Originally produced by the Caravan Farm Theatre in BC (the same company that created The Ballad of Weedy Peetstraw), this show is sure to please.
Weather Policy: Right Robert is outdoor theatre, performed in the open air with audience seated under a tent. Please dress appropriately for the weather.

If you choose not to come to the venue to assess the weather, you must contact us before showtime to make arrangements for a ticket exchange or conversion. If you do not, your tickets will be forfeited.
