The Canterbury Tales
by Geoffrey Chaucer
Given the bawdy nature of the show, we would advise an age guidance of 14+
A colourful cast of characters set off for Canterbury, competing to tell their tales of love, lust, adventure and chivalry. Brimming with verve and energy, Chaucer’s well-loved stories are brought beautifully and vividly alive by the students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
All of medieval life is here, with the wide range of social strata rubbing shoulders as the Miller, the Steward and the Wife of Bath (among others) all have their tales to tell.
The Canterbury Tales is a touchstone of English literature and has delighted readers for centuries.
