“David and Melissa Bareford are an incredibly dynamic team,” says Melinda Pallotta, Owner and Artistic Director of Love Street Playhouse.
“David is one of the most talented men I’ve met in the theatre industry. From playwright, to actor, to violence design, he is undoubtedly one of the Pacific Northwest’s greatest treasures, and with Robin Hood he has fashioned an extraordinary new take on the legend. This fast, funny, and colorful play is co-directed by David’s talented wife, the gifted director Melissa Bareford.
