The Canterbury Tweets is a modern reenactment of Chaucer’s tales of love, bawdy humor, and religious reckoning. The famed pilgrims and the subjects of their respective stories bring their oversized personalities to Twitter to share wisdom and dirty jokes in rhyming couplets. Fans and rabble-rousers alike, writing as characters doled out through W.W. Norton’s various social media channels, take ye old tales of Aprill and give them a 2011 twist.
The festivities will run from April 25-29.
Charlie Wheelan is The Merchant.
@angevin2 is The Clerk
Happy to announce that Mary Roach has agreed to play the role of the Pardoner!
