'The Canterbury Tales' paints an ironic and critical portrait of English society in the middle-ages.
From the company that brought you ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘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!
There will be medieval naughtiness and nonsense! There may be tights and a codpiece! There will, no doubt, be some fourteenth century swearing! Let’s party like it’s 1387!
This is Chaucer… but not as you’ve ever seen it.
“Mynne’s performance is exquisite: a masterclass in the telling of tales, it needs to be seen” – Ciaran Clarke: Arts End of Nowhere.
