The Canterbury Tales - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

Presented by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School


By Geoffrey Chaucer

Adapted by John Hartoch

Directed by Kirstie Davis

WEST COUNTRY TOUR 2019


Following on from their wonderful dramatisation of 'The Mill on the Floss' last year we are delighted to be welcoming back the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School as part of their West Country Tour 2019.


This year they will be presenting their production of 'The Canterbury Tales'. There aren't many shows still delighting audiences after over 600 years but this is one. 'The Canterbury Tales' is a touchstone of English literature, credited as an important moment in the popularisation of the English language in mainstream literature.


A colourful cast of characters set off on a pilgrimage to Canterbury. On the way they start a story-telling contest and compete to tell their tales of love, lust, adventure and chivalry. Brimming with verve and energy, Chaucer’s well-loved stories are brought beautifully and vividly alive by the students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.


All of medieval life is here, with the wide range of social strata rubbing shoulders as the Miller, the Steward and the Wife of Bath (among others) all have their tales to tell.


Opened in 1946 by Laurence Olivier, the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School has grown a reputation for attracting the very best in young acting talent and has some notable alumni to its name including Daniel Day Lewis, Greta Scacchi, Peter O’Toole, Olivia Colman and many more. The annual West Country tour gives you a chance to see the stars of tomorrow, on stage today!

The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music

Following the sell-out success of The Wind in the Willows (2018), Honiton Community Theatre Company return to The Beehive with one of the best known musicals of all time.


This classic Rogers and Hammerstein hit follows the young woman Maria as she is thrown into looking after the seven von Trapp children in the stunning surroundings of the Austrian Alps. With the threat of the Nazis just across the mountains and a father who isn’t sure how to love his children, Maria must protect them and help the von Trapps become a family again.


Join Maria, her fellow nuns and the von Trapp Family on a journey that will push them all to their limits, but will they escape with their lives intact?


A true Community performance bringing together all the generations” (NODA on The Wind in the Willows)

Lily and the Albatross

Lily and the Albatross

Combining a unique style of puppetry, live music and visual performance, 'Lily and the Albatross' is a heartfelt story about achieving the unachievable and never letting go of your childhood dreams.


Far out in the wild and remote ocean is a small family on an old fishing boat who pass the time with exciting stories and merry music. The whims of the water control their daily routine but Lily finds herself gazing upwards, where birds swim weightlessly above her head before stealing the precious fish from the fishing nets. With the threat of the nightly storm and its whipping winds, the family must pull together, take a leap of faith and look beyond what they have always known to get themselves and their old boat moving again. Discover the legend of Great Captain Markham, join the family as they battle the elements and meet a gliding albatross, who flies in the face of the storm and gives Lily the nudge she needs to truly stretch her wings.


A tale of wild weather, wild birds and wild ambitions for ages 5+ (but younger welcome)
