Media Reviews
Lively, upbeat, great fun: lots of staging and props ideas for the novice director, those with more experience will enjoy being more experimental. Great for Year 9s * 5 Start Amazon review *
The kids can really have a lot of fun with the quirky style and the character of the Pardoner always gets an enthusiastic response. It is an ideal way to introduce Chaucer to teens who might be a bit intimidated by jumping straight into the middle English of the original * 5 Star Amazon review *
