The Miller's Tale With The Songs Of Bob Dylan

Saturday 6th April 2012
Performance Times: 2pm & 8pm

Chaucer, Dylan, Quite a few hats.

It's The Miller's Tale from the Canterbury Tales, told as never before!

A musical comedy of Chaucer's '14th Century Carry-on', told by England's oldest song and dance man, the Miller.

Yes, the very Miller that rode out of London on the pilgrimage to Canterbury...

These days he recites his poem, dances around his broomstick, sings the songs of Bob Dylan and wears an interesting collection of hats. It's definitely six centuries of separation. While keeping close to the original poetry, the Miller is almost fluent in modern English and understandably bonkers!

'You've taken a gem of a story and re-worked it so brilliantly for a contemporary audience, you've blown the dust off Chaucer's language and made us hear it afresh, you've made us laugh, sing, listen ... you made me cry with laughter. You were brilliant'
- Vivien Ellis, The Dufay Collective, International ensemble Sinfonye and Dartington Music Summer School

'A highly original and inventive interpretation - Chaucer himself would have been delighted at Pete's inimitable wacky style and would have become an overnight fan of Bob Dylan'
