The Canterbury Tales
Opening 13 July 2006
Under the sardonic eye of Chaucer himself, a group of pilgrims each recount a tale to entertain their companions on the road to Canterbury. By turns comic, bawdy and sublime, these great theatrical tales and their tellers are a vivid testimony to Chaucer's insight and human nature.
THE KNIGHT, THE MILLER AND OTHER TALES (Part 1)
The pilgrims' journey begins with the pageantry and spectacle of The Knight's Tale as chivalrous rivals compete for their love's affections. Later love is of a different vein in the shape of the bawdy Miller's Tale, before the farmyard chaos of the Nun's Priest's Tale as the vain cockerel Chaunticleer is abducted by the wily col-fox.
THE WIFE OF BATH AND OTHER TALES (Part 2)
As the colourful characters near Canterbury perhaps the most famous of the pilgrims, the worldly-wise Wife of bath, regales her fellow travellers with tales of unfortunate and downtrodden husbands. In contrast the Franklin tells his romance of Arveragus, Aurelius and Dorigen steeped in the lofty ideals of chivalry and courtly love.

Closing 15 July 2006
Celebrating the centenary of Samuel Beckett and following a sell-out season at the Gate Theatre, Dublin, the astonishing Eh Joe is an unmissable 30 minutes of theatrical invention.
