with Michael Bogdanov
Phil Woods takes a deliberately unacademic approach to Chaucer's great work, while at the same time retaining the original's sense of fun, chivalry and satire in this updated version.
This Canterbury Tales has been acclaimed by audiences and critics throughout the country (including the West End)) and has been produced by countless professional and amateur theatre companies.
The text had been out of print for some years but is now brought back into publication by IRON Press.
"Like all the best borrowings, Phil Woods' script captures in its own satiric style the comic essence of Chaucer's glee at human credulity and conformity."
"Colourful, boozy, good-spirited compelling entertainment."
