Dulwich Players present Canterbury Tales (Jul 9,10,16,17)


To be performed in the gardens of Bell House, 27 College Road, Dulwich, SE21 7BG

On an April morning ‘well nine and twenty’ pilgrims gathered at the Tabard Inn to set off to Canterbury. Along the way it is suggested that each Pilgrim tells two tales on the way there and two on the way back. However, in the event the Pilgrims never reach Canterbury and only 23 tales are recorded for posterity – the short time we have permits us to only retell five of these tales from Mike Poulton’s adaptation for the Royal Shakespeare Company, but we hope that our choices - which range from the heroic (The Knight's Tale) to the bawdy (The Miller's Tale) – mirror as best we can the many narrative voices employed by Chaucer.
