The Canterbury Tales told in Honiton

The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School will present The Canterbury Tales in Honiton as part of its West Country tour.
Being staged at The Beehive on Saturday, June 22, Geoffrey Chaucer’s classic drama is directed by Kirtstie Davis and designed by Alex Berry.

Penned more than 600 years ago, the drama tells the tale of a colourful cast of characters as they set off for a story-telling competition.

They aim to compete with tales of love, lust, chivalry and adventure.

The theatre school performed The Mill on the Floss at The Beehive last year. This year’s offering is said to be equally “brimming with verve and energy”.

It promises audiences a chance to get up close and personal to medieval life, with characters from a wide range of backgrounds – all rubbing shoulders to tell their stories.

Laurence Olivier opened Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 1946 and, since then, it has developed a reputation for attracting the very best in young acting talent.

Notable alumni include Daniel Day Lewis, Greta Scacchi, Peter O’Toole, Olivia Colman, and many more.
