The Canterbury Tales by Half Cut Theatre
1 month ago
Half Cut Theatre are delighted to bring you this brand new adaptation of
some of the most romantic, ridiculous and raucous stories you’ve ever
pretended to have read. Never content with the easy life, they take their
loving but disarmingly sharp hatchet to one of the seminal works of
English Literature: Geoffrey Chaucer’s six-hundred-year-old-snapshot-of mediaeval-society-in-all-its-filth-and-glory, ‘The Canterbury Tales’.
All good stories start down the pub, and this one is no different. A
mismatched group of travellers ready themselves for a gruelling journey.
Some have an axe to grind but all have a tale to tell. Can Harry, behind
the bar at The Tabard Inn, keep control? What secrets is the Wife of Bath
about to spill? Are we ready for Tim Pardoner’s latest get rich quick
scheme? And will anybody actually make it to Canterbury? There’s only
one way to find out…
Fresh from delighting audiences with their ‘sparky, funny, beautifully acted’
Much Ado About Nothing (Susan Elkin, ****) and then utterly terrifying
them before thankfully uplifting them with their ‘omninous… uncanny’ and
‘very effective’ A Christmas Carol (StageTalk Magazine, ****), Half Cut
Theatre are thrilled to be hitting the road once again!
Packed full of uncontrollable laughs and uncontrollable loves, stunning
original music and stunning original mayhem, Half Cut bring their
trademark joy to this anarchic journey which will delight young and old
Tickets are free and audiences are asked to pay what they can at the end of the show. Visit Eventbrite or call or drop into SEACC to book.
