A landmark dramatisation for the Royal Shakespeare Company of one of the foundation stones of English literature.

This two-play adaptation of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales encompasses all 23 stories. All the famous characters are here – as well as many less well-known but equally full of life. Each of the stories has its own style – heroic verse for the Knight’s Tale, vernacular rhymes for the Miller’s Tale etc. – echoing the many narrative voices employed by Chaucer himself.

The plays can be performed either together or separately.
