A Mappa Mundi / Theatr Mwldan / Creu Cymru Co-Production


Mappa Mundi’s new revival of their popular sell-out show takes Geoffrey Chaucer’s text and transforms it into a dramatic and comical entertainment, full of wit and charm. As they make their annual pilgrimage to Canterbury, a group of Welsh commoners pass the time by performing some of Chaucer’s most appealing tales, filling the stage with a blend of boisterous comedy, romance and fetching images.

The show features some of Chaucer’s best-loved stories (including The Miller’s Tale, The Nun’s Priest’s Tale and The Wife of Bath’s Tale), all set to a delightful Mappa Mundi score. Ideal for all those who enjoy earthy humour and a good story, The Canterbury Tales is an enchanting, fast-paced entertainment guaranteed to put hair on your chest! A light-hearted, joyous and slightly naughty evening is in store as the excellent Mappa Mundi take to the road with this adaptation of medieval literature’s best-known work. Suitable for audiences aged 12 and over.
