29 OCTOBER – 1 NOVEMBER
Popping up in James Street Tavern, The Covered Market and other spaces, our raucous three-hander adapted Chaucer’s conflicting tale into a modern adaptation of greed and trickery. Written and adapted by Christmas favourite Gari Jones, The Pardoner’s Tale preached and pick-pocketed it’s way into the 21st century, 800+ years after the original was written.
With the hope to eventually adapt this into a full length version of The Canterbury Tales further down the line, we weaved in some post-show talks and audience feedback to test the water.
