Bristol Old Vic Theatre School presents the Canterbury Tales at Armstrong Hall

June 28


Armstrong Hall

£10 to £15

THE Bristol Old Vic Theatre School comes to Thornbury in June to present the Canterbury Tales at the Armstrong Hall.

Written by Chaucer, the famous stories feature a colourful cast of characters who set off on a pilgrimage to Canterbury, competing to tell their tales of love, lust, adventure and chivalry.

They represent the social demographic of medieval life, with the Miller, the Steward and the Wife of Bath brought alive by student actors.

The Old Vic Theatre School has trained actors including Daniel Day-Lewis, Patrick Stewart, Olivia Colman, Helen Baxendale and Jeremy Irons, so the cast of the latest production could include some stars of the future.

The adaptation is by John Hartoch, is directed by Kirstie Davis and designed by Alex Berry.

The performance takes place on Friday June 28 at 7.30pm and is a fundraising event for the Armstrong Hall redevelopment.

Tickets are available from Thornbury Town Hall at £15 (concessions £10 for students aged 14 – 18) or by calling 01454 412272.

The performance is suitable for everyone aged 14 and over.
