The Canterbury Tales is about an unrelated group of pilgrims traveling together on a pilgrimage One of the major aspects of the journey is the unique diversity of the characters There are knights nuns monks lower-class tradesman and single women They interact together and tell each other their tales The play was presented to the audience in a conventional manner and took place in a thrust theater The performance by the actors was mediocre but it is understandable being that it was a college production The reasons for this were that they werent believable in there actions I dont feel that they grasped the true feelings of the characters that they were portraying The performers would have sparked the audience more if they showed more enthusiasm and corisma in their roles Although I did appreciate how the actors worked together as a unit in putting on this production there didnt seem to be a sole leading role through out the play and each member of the cast contributed to make the audience entertained This is an important factor not just for the audience but for the actors mainly because it elimates jealousy in role playing thus each actor will make a valiant attempt at the role he or she is given I was disappointed when I entered the theatre to find that the production was to be put on in such a small theatre as an audience member I was cramped and felt as if the production was being put on in my lap On the other hand I favor the thrust theatre so it took away some of the apprehension I had from being in such a confined place As far as scenery goes this production had slim to none the stage was small and had a backdrop of white curtains If the director was trying to impress the audience with this aspect of the play he did a terrible job
