Phil Woods has updated Chaucer to recreate for a modern audience the spectacle, humour and bawdiness of the fourteenth-century original. Set in the present the tales are told in the form of an annual "Geoffrey Chaucer Canterbury Tales-telling Competition", with the audience invited on stage between tales.
"Like all the best borrowings, Phil Woods' script captures in its own satiric style the comic essence of Chaucer's glee at human credulity and conformity." - The Guardian
"Anyone labouring under the misapprehension that medieval English literature is dry and academic should catch up with this splendid dramatised version of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales." - Western Mail
"Colourful, boozy, good-spirited, compelling entertainment." - Stage & Television Today
