Canterbury Tales

Becky and I went to the Kennedy Center last night to see Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company. It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment decision to go, but Becky has wanted to see the RSC for years, and here was a great opportunity!

The show was incredible--hilarious, witty, and definitely bawdy. For those who don't remember their High School English Literature, Chaucer was basically a 14th century Benny Hill! The show was so wonderfully done, so well acted, and so damn funny, that the three hours seemed to fly away.

I would definitely recommend it to anybody wanting to see a good rousing comedy show, and you can tell all your friends that it is High Theatre.

It makes me wish that I had done more of my assigned reading in English Lit!

Yeah, this is the one the English teachers throw in because they know you won't read it!!!
