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 and vividly to life by students from the prestigious Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, whose notable alumni include Daniel Day Lewis, Peter O'Toole and Olivia Colman.
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 others) all have their tales to tell. The Canterbury Tales is a touchstone of English literature and has delighted readers for centuries. See the stars of the future on stage today.
