David Mynne – The Canterbury Tales

Event Date
Friday 1st March 2024

The Old Chapel, Godolphin Cross


Full price £10, Under 18 £5, Unwaged £6, Family £25

From the company that brought you ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘Great Expectations’, ‘Dracula’ and ‘The Odyssey’ comes a one-man performance of ‘Canterbury Tales’.

Revered as one of the most important works in English literature, ‘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 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 naughtiness, nonsense, medieval swearing and flatulence! It’s rude! It’s ribald! It’s ridiculous! Let’s party like it’s 1387! This is Chaucer… but not as you think you know it!
