Canterbury Sextet

by Larry Rinkel

Waiting for a flight to London delayed by weather, six passengers decide to pass the time by re-enacting six of the stories from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales (the Merchant, Miller, Reeve, Wife of Bath, Knight, and Nun’s Priest). Along the way they find the stories not only have a lot to say about sex, love, marriage, social status, youth, and age; but they are also revealed as reflections of each character’s personality and relationship to his or her fellow travelers. This play can be performed as a full-length work, or each tale can be presented as a separate 10-15 minute play.

  • Cast Size: 4M 2W
  • Running Time: 90+ minutes for full presentation/10-15 minutes for individual works
  • Royalty Rate: $75 for full production performance/$15 when shorts are produced individually
