in situ:‘s walkaround production, a revival of our sell-out performances in 2005 and 2006 takes place inside, outside and all around the beautiful and atmospheric Leper Chapel.
Outside: stories from rude Reeves, risque Merchants, romantic Knights, creepy Pardoners and just plain dirty Millers.
Inside: eerie recitations in original Middle English, chants and vocalisations; alchemy;scholarship.
The mysterious inner workings of the medieval psyche.
