Fall Roadshow: The Canterbury Tales
Directed by Leigh Clapp
Geoffrey Chaucher's classic collection of tales comes to life in an ingenious adaptation. The plot features a group of travelers who set out for Canterbury on a pilgrimage. To pass the time they amuse each other with a storytelling contest. The best story wins a prize. Unforgettable characters entertain with wit and humor in this spirited, charming production.
The approximate run time is 70 minutes. Although the play is open to all ages and suitable for upper elementary and older, the show contains mild adult themes and references to alcohol.

Come learn about these women, and you will leave inspired!
