The Canterbury Tales @ The Unicorn Theatre Abingdon

Friday, March 15, 2024 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Half Cut Theatre bring you their own telling of Chaucer’s Big Book.

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 alike.

Tickets are FREE to book.
