Canterbury Tales - Sydney Season Theatre Royal May 1969

Based on the Original Direction of Martin Starkie

Canterbury Tales is a musical originally presented at the Oxford Playhouse in 1964, conceived and directed by Martin Starkie and written by Nevill Coghill and Martin Starkie.

The musical took five tales from the Canterbury Tales and told them with song and humour. These were; The Miller’s Tale; The Nun’s Priest’s Tale; The Steward’s Tale; The Merchant’s Tale; and The Wife of Bath’s Tale. In addition, Chaucer’s Prologue and Epilogue were spoken. The purpose behind these stories was that Harry Bailey, one of the main characters, declares that each pilgrim should tell a tale on the way to Canterbury so that the ride would be more enjoyable.
