Canterbury Tales Reviews

“What’s to be got by transferring Chaucer’s tales from page to the stage? A

multifaceted encounter with a bawdy, mystical, hilarious world 600 years old and fresh

as a morning in May, that’s what…….. as invigorating as a high wind over the downs in

spring.”  The Observer

“Chaucer might be said to have pioneered the Broadsides approach: championing the

vernacular in its chewiest, most robust form; capable of embracing any number of

styles; always most memorable when being a little bit rude….. Yet Nelson’s production

manages to become more than the sum of its entendres. The Clerk’s Tale of patient

Griseldaa complex allegory about the constancy of the Christian soul done with such

ravishing tenderness that it becomes a highlight.. Chaucer’s work is all about the

journey: Northern Broadsides make the arrival truly transporting as well.”  The Guardian
“a stunning production”  The Stage
“Nelson’s direction is awe inspiring. He moves his sixteen players like a chess

grandmaster.. Wonderful stuff. We see the stories flow by and are delighted by them,

the ensemble and each actor as he or she takes the opportunity to shine. Shine they do!

this is a tip-top cast….There is a sense of contemporary and historical rightness about

this show, Broadsides would do worse than bring it back every two or three years. It

shows our culture and national character in a good light. And it’s a smashing night in

the theatre.”  The British Theatre Guide
“Nelson plays to Broadsides’ traditional strengths; equal relish for the sound and

meaning of language; robust, bravura ensemble acting with individual colour and an

eye for audience interaction; a wooden set full of delightful surprises; and brass, string

and percussive music by Nelson that sweeps from Dixieland jazz to a hymnal finale of

exquisite beauty by candlelight.”  York Press
“From Geoffrey Chaucer’s very earnest opening to the captivating harmonies of the

final scene in Canterbury Cathedral, Northern Broadsides’ production is a joyful

celebration of this 600-year-old story.The show is bursting at the seams with colourful

characters and their bawdy tales…..this is a pilgrimage that delights from start to end.”  Liverpool Daily Post
“In many ways Chaucer and Broadsides go together like the proverbial fish and chips,

and the only surprise is they haven’t enjoyed each other’s ribald storytelling company

more.”  Liverpool Echo
