The Canterbury Tales

It’s a long, long road…

This is as vital and bawdy and funny and moving and ultimately redemptive a stage version of Chaucer’s great work as you would wish to see.  There’s some terrific stuff to be had on stage here.

If you are looking for a modern edition of the text, I can recommend Peter Ackroyd’s retelling, which was published just this year.

The Canterbury Tales is currently touring the UK until mid-June.  Tour dates are here.
