Ha Ha Hood!  And The Prince of Leaves

THE FUNNIEST FARCE IN THE FOREST!
HA HA HOOD! And The Prince Of Leaves
STARRING
SU POLLARD and CANNON AND BALL
With Ben Langley and Andy Pickering

The Ha Ha! team are BACK with a brand new and all-out outrageous comic romp!

Ten years after a messy divorce Robin and Marian are forced back together to fight the Sheriff once more. Little John and Friar Tuck, now considerably older and rougher around the edges, join the merry pair to try and save the citizens of Nottingham…

Comedy queen Su Pollard (Hi-de-Hi!, You Rang, M’Lord) and comedy duo Cannon and Ball team up for an all-out outrageous side splitting romp. Ha Ha Hood! And The Prince of Leaves is the latest laugh-out-loud production from the Ha Ha! team who had us rolling in the aisles with Ha Ha Holmes!, Ha Ha Hitler! and Ha Ha Hamlet!. Created by Ben Langley, who also takes on the mantle of Robin, Ha Ha Hood! Prince of Leaves gallops into action at the Chelmsford Civic with a 5 night run from 19 – 23 August before taking off on a 61 date national tour from 4 September through 17 November.

Maid Marian, Nottinghamshire’s feistiest female, who has in the past been brought to life by the likes of screen goddesses Audrey Hepburn, Cate Blanchett and Uma Thurman is now portrayed by Su Pollard, who serves up a world-weary Marian who is definitely more matron than maid! Tommy Cannon takes on the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and Little John while Bobby Ball, currently starring in TV’s Not Going Out with Lee Mack, doubles up as Friar Tuck and Guy of Gisborne.

Su Pollard is a comedy icon who needs no introduction. The Nottingham-born lass makes for a perfect menopausal Marian, cutting her comedy chops on hit BBC sitcom Hi-de-Hi as scatty chalet maid Peggy. Su cemented her camp credentials with comedies You Rang, M’lord and Oh, Doctor Beeching, and is a musical theatre and pantomime heroine!
Cannon and Ball’s starring role in Ha Ha Hood! Prince of Leaves marks forty years since their first television appearance and a whopping fifty years together as a duo. The Cannon and Ball Show ran for 9 hugely successful years and the pair have 2 sitcoms and numerous theatre/pantomime appearances under their belts; not forgetting their hilarious stint on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
Ben Langley has worked in London’s Covent Garden as a street performer for the last 18 years, winning The Bristol Harbour Festival Street Performer of the Year award. He is co-founder of the Ha Ha Boys comedy team, writing and touring the Ha Ha series of theatre shows since 2007.
“For me, what I saw in Ha Ha! was a British version of The Reduced Shakespeare Company which, rather than taking the micky out of us, was embracing us and was very pro-British and was a tribute to all of the great comedy artists and routines that have made Britain funny over the last 50 to 100 years.” – Ben Langley, creator
Following the hugely successful UK tour of Ha Ha Holmes!, the irreverent and hilarious Ha Ha Hood! Prince of Leaves is a deliciously twisted take on the tale of Robin Hood and rides into a theatre near you this autumn.
