One of the greatest works of English Literature is brought to life by Tower Theatre Company in this original production which transports Chaucer's pilgrims to 2019; re-imagining his tales using modern vernacular, movement, comedy and live music.

A diverse group of travellers find themselves sharing their journey to Canterbury. As they each share the tales they have lived, heard, witnessed or even imagined we realise that despite our differences, stories have the power to bring us together.

This production contains scenes of a sexual nature, violence and strong language. Recommended age 14+
