Details

A riotous and rollicking retelling of the medieval masterpiece!
Acclaimed historical theatre company Blast from the Past presents a new version of Geoffrey Chaucer’s timeless classic The Canterbury Tales – six of the best-loved tales, told in a variety of styles.

Taking visual inspiration from medieval mystery plays and complete with a touring set which has been specially constructed to resemble a medieval travelling theatre, the three-man cast use drama, verse, physical theatre and song to bring Chaucer's characters to riotous life, telling tales packed with colourful characters and strange situations.

This is definitely not a dry academic take on English literature – the show is fast, furious, occasionally filthy and invariably funny!
The show is unsuitable for under 12s (and serious scholars of the Late Middle Ages...)
