It spun me back into Grade 11 English Lit mode but it was one fun ride. The Road to Canterbury is a modern twist on Chaucer’s Tales that takes place all across Queen Elizabeth Park this month.


The play follows a small cast of Chaucer’s original gang including The Knight’s Tale, The Miller’s Tale, The Wife of Bath’s Tale, The Pardoner’s Tale, and The Prioress’ Tale. All of which are splashed with current-day scenarios and humour.

Not only do you get to experience this comedic romp in the open air, but you’ll also get a nice tour of the amazing gardens at Queen Elizabeth Park while you’re at it. The show is over 90 minute long so be sure to wear sensible shoes and feel free to bring a picnic blanket to rest during some of the acts.

The Road to Canterbury is presented by ITSAZOO Productions and will run until August 21st. Evening walks begin at 7:00pm (matinees at 2:00pm) and tickets can be purchased on site near the entrance to the Bloedel Conservatory or reserved by calling (604) 221-6604.

Please note, the show is not suitable for children under 10 years of age.
