Telling Tales

Patience Agbabi's new poetry collection Telling Tales remixes all the stories of Chaucer's masterwork and presents an array of 21st-century characters described as 'punks, badasses, broken hearts, beat poets, silver-tongued fixers, town criers, beauties, sinners...' (Jeanette Winterson). Medieval meets modern in a sizzling staged slam featuring the talents of poets including: Francesca Beard, Steve Tasane, Michael Brome, The Speech Painter, Kyrill Potapov, Shane Solanki, and Pete the Temp - each of whom will breathe life into one of Agbabi's irreverent pilgrims.
