The Wife of Bath

Author Chaucer

Archive :: production:T01182725246, play:S05618907, venue:V955

Production details

In a tale where nothing is quite as it seems Trading Faces give the fast and furious Commedia dell'Arte treatment to Chaucer's medieval housewife and her raucous tale. Combining the use of half and full masks and weaving together the Wife's own story with her provocative Arthurian tale, Chaucer's flamboyant characters are brought to life in a bawdy comedy with 14th Centure marriage guidance from the Wife of Bath herself!
