In The Canterbury Tales, Hell's mouth and its fiendish occupants slaver expectantly in the background-and there is no shortage of sinners to feed the infernal pit in this collection of saucey sardonic tales. In a racy, pacy and tremendously theatrical adaption of Chaucer's classic' we are invited to re-evaluate our values and distinguish between naughtiness and nastiness. This re-telling is as crafty as it is crafted, capturing the energy and wit of the original in vibrant imaginative new ways. SuperScripts are tried and tested plays that will appeal to 11 - 16 year olds. Mostly written by professional playwrights and performed in public to popular acclaim, these plays are ideal for the English classroom and drama studio and are accompanied by an extensive range of original activities.
