Archives - Canterbury Tales

by Jeremy Secker

Directed by Keith Thompson

Saturday 7th – Saturday 14th May 1988 in the Auditorium

No introduction is necessary for Jeremy Secker’s brilliant treatment of Chaucer’s famous Tales. Guaranteed to be the baudiest and most rumbustious end to a Barn season yet!
