Canterbury Tales

It’s Rude! It’s Ribald! It’s Ridiculous!


Cost: £10 per ticket

Maximum attendance: 80

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! 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+)

A Christmas Carol was beautiful – apparently simple theatre with just one actor but you go home remembering a cast of dozens! He is a genius.
– Richard Wolfenden-Brown: Director The Plough Arts Centre

Mynne’s performance is exquisite: a masterclass in the telling of tales, it needs to be seen.
– Ciaran Clarke: Arts End of Nowhere (on ‘Dracula’)
