A Classic Collection of Characters: The Canterbury Tales

The Canterbury Tales
Written by Lindsay Price

Chaucer’s classic collection of tales comes to life in the brilliant full-length adaptation, The Canterbury Tales by Lindsay Price.

A group of travelers set out for Canterbury on a pilgrimage. To pass the time they entertain each other with a storytelling contest. Best story wins a prize.

Each and every performer gets a chance to shine in this spirited, charming script. There are great characters, lots of humour, and strong ensemble work. Text uses modern English.

Led by director, Jeff Marontate, the students at Vincent Massey Secondary School in Windsor, Ontario had a great time taking on this fun-filled classical adaptation. Great sets, great students, great success!

We had so many students audition for the play that we expanded the number of cast members, and added a (silent) nun to accompany our Prioress. The show was great fun, and the kids had a blast!

Great job, Vincent Massey Secondary School!
