The Wife of Bath’s Tale

Adapted from Chaucer by Lorella Loftus and Shekhar Govind
Directed by Karen Jambon
Presented by Lorella Loftus and VORTEX


This fresh, bright adaptation of The Wife of Bath’s Tale from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, offers a modern twist on an old tale. The Wife of Bath’s Tale blends a contemporary character and setting with clever video, original illustrations and music, a splash of Middle English, and a sprinkling of time-travel. Insightful and humorous, and always surprising, it proves that the more things change, the more they stay the same. But what is the same for one, may not be the same for all...

This one-woman show stars Lorella Loftus. Also featuring Andy Agne.
