About the Tales

Written in the late 14th century, The Canterbury Tales is the high-water mark of medieval English literature. Based around the concept of a disparate group of pilgrims to the shrine of Thomas à Becket at Canterbury Cathedral who tell each other stories to while away the journey, it paints a rich and vibrant portrait of life in medieval England.

About the Show

Green Matthews present six of the best-loved tales, told in a variety of styles. This is definitely not a dry academic take on English literature – the show is fast, furious, occasionally filthy and invariably funny!

Please note - The show is unsuitable for under 12s (and serious scholars of the Late Middle Ages...)
