When you hear “The Canterbury Tales”, you might initially think of long hours in school being lectured to on historical happenings and drifting off to sleep.


Well you can think again!  


This fast-paced adaptation of six of Chaucer’s famous stories has a surprise around every corner.

Just as in Geoffrey Chaucer’s day, this group of “Pilgrims” is hitting the road and heading off not to Canterbury, but in this case to Hopetoun!


Updated and with a modern twist, the stories of love and lust, stupidity and passion, chivalry and greed all unfold as the cast of six from the Bare Naked Theatre Company cruise effortlessly from “ye olden days”, to the wild west, then onto the “unflappable” roaring twenties, London in the hip fifties and finally off to a galaxy far, far away…


Comic, scurrilous, bawdy, poignant or tragic, this is an evening of fun for all ages....!

Locally presented by the Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council tickets are available from Hopetoun and Ravensthorpe Community Resource Centre’s.

 If you book and pay for a table of 10 before the performance on Saturday the 13th of April we will give you a complimentary bottle of wine.

Don’t worry if you can’t make a table just buy your ticket and join in.  Come early and grab a Gourmet Wood Fired Pizza from The Toun Beach Café mobile pizza oven, a drink from the bar and catch up with your friends.

The performance will start at 8.00pm; doors will open at 7.00pm.  A bus is available from Ravensthorpe, leaving the Ravensthorpe CRC Carpark at 6.30pm and can pick up along the way, just book your seat when you buy your ticket.

  1. What an excellent performance, the acting was fantastic and I'm sooo glad they didn't stick to the original middle english dialogue - bring it on!
