Canterbury Tales, The

Canterbury Tales, The

an explosion of live music, story-telling and general mischief, Southwark Playhouses Main House will be transformed into a fully functioning tavern for a new adaptation of Geoffrey Chaucers medieval masterpiece this Christmas. The Canterbury Tales is an immersive production that puts the audience at the heart of the action as patrons of the Tabard Inn, which  as the starting point of the pilgrims journey to Canterbury  once stood a five minute walk away from Southwark Playhouse on what is now Borough High Street. at turns enchanting, scandalous and disgusting the tales unfold in a mixture of story and song as a collection of rogues, wenches and travelers tell stories to entertain each other on their prilgrimage. From the antics of adulterous lovers to the revenge of cuckolded husbands, the characters remain as engaging and recognisable today as they were in the 14th century. Featuring live folk music, local ale and stories that are not for the faint-hearted, this is an evening of story-telling theatre like no other.

By Geoffrey Chaucer, Adapted by Tom Daplyn
