    David Mynne : 'The Canterbury Tales'Welcome to ‘The Canterbury’, an Olde English Inn,
    Infamous around these parts for villainy and sin.
    The floor is caked in sawdust, for soaking up the spit,
    And the air is thick with stories told with wisdom, guile and wit.
    Some stories are romantic, some are bawdy, others scary
    And there are tales about the devil that should make you oh so wary,
    Some are beautifully poetic and some a little coarser;
    A medieval medley from the pen of Geoffrey Chaucer! 

    From the company that brought you 'A Christmas Carol', 'Dracula' and 'The Odyssey' comes a One-man performance of 'The Canterbury Tales'.
    David Mynne has an enviable reputation for providing amongst the best and most entertaining One-Man shows in the UK.    David was also seen in Kneehigh Theatre’s production of “Fup” at Heligan Gardens.

    David Mynne : 'The Canterbury Tales'

    Revered as one of the most important works in English literature, 'The Canterbury Tales' paints an ironic and critical portrait of English society in the Middle-Ages.
    All of life is here in these few bawdy, funny, serious and sometimes shocking, short stories.
    Experience a journey down the foul and fetid footpaths of fourteenth-century England, told with the usual irreverence, wit and silliness!

    Expect archaic naughtiness and nonsense!
    Possibly tights and a codpiece!
    Definitely medieval swearing!
    Let's party like it's 1387!
    This is Chaucer... but not as you think you know it!

    A Christmas Carol was beautiful – apparently simple theatre with just one actor but you go home remembering a cast of dozens! He is a genius. – Richard Wolfenden-Brown: Director The Plough Arts Centre(on ‘A Christmas Carol’)

    David Mynne’s performance is exquisite: a masterclass in the telling of tales, it needs to be seen” – Ciaran Clarke: Arts End of Nowhere.

    NB This event is scheduled to be an Open-Air show but may be held in the Theatre, depending upon Covid-19 regulations at the time

    present
    Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'

    Our play is set in something very close to contemporary Britain.
    Queen Duncan, with the help of Macbeth and Banquo, has narrowly managed to stave off another revolt against her authority.  Other powerful figures in the land circle, looking for their chance to grab control.

    Society, the rule of law and Government as we thought we knew it have broken down.

    The witches, creatures of a disaffected underclass, wreak havoc for their own amusement, encouraging Macbeth to be first to seize his chance.  His wife adds her efforts and the stage is set for tragedy.

    We watch the tragic hero, so aware of each stage of his own downfall, continue along the path he has chosen for himself.

    Other leaders watch his efforts and choose their allegiances, often changing sides as events unravel.

     Who will inherit what is left of the kingdom?
