The Miller’s Story’. An audience engaging, fun filled romp of Medieval naughtiness based on some of the characters in Chaucer’s ‘Millers Tale from The Canterbury Tales’ A lonely and ageing Miller leaves his home in Manchester and Journeys to Canterbury, stopping off in London Town along the way, for a night of revelry and storytelling with his fellow pilgrims. Using Physical Comedy, Mask, Music and Song the audience are invited to join the Miller sharing in the highs and the lows of the journey.

A few words from Simon about the show: So I’m often asked what is ‘The Millers Story’ about? Here you go. It’s a physical comedy, theatre clown show, based around Chaucer’s ‘Canterbury Tales’, especially the Miller. I’ve given the Miller a back story a life before print so to speak, that way the audience can begin to empathise with the character and share some of his experiences. In the show, I sing, I dance, I tell stories and play. It’s a little naughty, it’s great fun and only an 1hr long, so you can get a pint or a bite to eat on the way home.
