Event Details

Welcome to ‘The Canterbury’, an Olde English Inn:

Infamous around these parts for villainy and sin.

The floor is fresh with sawdust for soaking up the spit.

And the air is full of stories, told with wisdom, guile and wit.

Some of them romantic, some are bawdy, others scary

And there are tales about the devil that should make you oh so wary.

Some are beautifully poetic and some a little coarser;

A medieval medley from the pen of Geoffrey Chaucer!

From the company that brought you 'A Christmas Carol', 'Great Expectations', 'Dracula' and 'The Odyssey' comes a one-man performance of 'The Canterbury Tales'. 

Revered as one of the most important works in English literature, 'The Canterbury Tales' paints an ironic and critical portrait of English society in the middle-ages. 

All of life is here in these few bawdy, funny, serious and sometimes shocking, short stories. Experience a journey down the foul and fetid footpaths of fourteenth-century England, told with the usual irreverence, wit and silliness! 

Expect archaic naughtiness and nonsense! Possibly tights and a codpiece! Definitely medieval swearing! Let's party like it's 1387!

This is Chaucer... but not as you think you know it!

For adults and older children (12+)
