The Tabard Inn, London, sometime in the fourteenth century…

…a motley group of individuals - Knight, Cook, Miller, Squire, Wife and more - gather for their pilgrimage to Canterbury Cathedral. On the way, they regale each other with their colourful tales to pass the time of day, and thus unfolds one of the greatest collections of stories ever told.

Come to THE CANTERBURY TALES and experience theatrical riches it's almost impossible to sum up: love stories, rude stories and farce most lewd, high romance and hidden depths, chivalry, villainy, jousting and boisterous antics, mirth and merriment, poetry and puppetry and a good dose of song and dance. This is human nature at its best and worst and it's wickedly entertaining.

The tales may be medieval, but the sheer humanity they contain speaks through the ages. Reworked for Northern Broadsides, THE CANTERBURY TALES is the perfect play for this charismatic company of multi-talented actors. Audiences have constantly delighted in Broadsides' infectious exuberance and enthusiasm unmatched by any other company.

What you'll love… a deliciously witty adaptation, a fresh script, from the company who played to packed houses at The Nuffield in 2006 with The Man With Two Gaffers

"The sheer dedication and drive of the company…takes your breath away, pushing you to your feet come curtain call" The Daily Telegraph
