Event description

Description

Late in the 14th century, thirty pilgrims on their way to Canterbury engaged in a game of tale-telling. Though this was a time of plague and war, Chaucer’s pilgrims didn’t tell stories about those evils. Instead, most of their stories showed how, one way or another, women were the root of all of men’s troubles. Aided by recorder specialist Femke Bergsma’s medieval musical magic, three contemporary storytellers, Daniel Kletke, Phil Nagy, and Gail Anglin, bring to life a cross-section of Chaucer’s women – bold and lusty faithless wives; long-suffering faithful wives; chaste and devout maidens – and the men who made their lives heaven or hell.
