Written in the late 14th century, The Canterbury Tales is perhaps the best well known example of medieval English literature. It paints a rich and vibrant portrait of life in medieval England as a disparate group of pilgrims travel to the shrine of Thomas à Becket at Canterbury Cathedral and tell each other stories to while away the journey. All human life is present from the dark and brooding Pardoners Tale to the bawdy Millers Tale, via the proto-feminism of the Wife of Baths Tale and the simple whimsy of the Nuns Priests Tale. Although Chaucer wrote his tales more than 600 years ago, they still feel vital and accessible to modern audiences. Blast from the Past present 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 Chaucers characters to riotous life.
