BOVTS: The Canterbury Tales

BOVTS | Drama

West Country Tour

By Geoffrey Chaucer
Adapted by John Hartoch
Directed by Kirstie Davis
Designed by Alex Berry

A colourful cast of characters set off for Canterbury competing to tell their tales of love, lust, adventure and chivalry. Brimming with verve and energy, Chaucer’s well-loved stories are brought beautifully alive by students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

All of medieval life is here, with the wide range of social strata rubbing shoulders as the Miller, the Steward and the Wife of Bath (among other) all have their tales to tell.

The Canterbury Tales is a touchstone of English literature and has delighted readers for centuries.

Suitable for ages 14+
