Chaucer's 'Tales' relatable for modern audience
DeKALB – An adaptation of Geoffrey Chaucer’s “The Canterbury Tales” will be presented as the next Studio Series production of the Northern Illinois University School of Theatre and Dance.
“The Canterbury Tales” originally consisted of 24 stories written by Chaucer at the end of the 14th century. Eight of these stories have been adapted for the stage by visiting assistant professor Luke Krueger, and the play is directed by Stanton Davis.
An interesting aspect of the play is the use of historical figures from the court of King Richard II as characters who enact Chaucer’s tales. The figures become intriguing stories within the stories. The play will also feature music from the time period.
