Chaucer All Strung Up

"magically mysterious" Three Weeks

"leaves the audience gasping in amazement and applauding in delight"

Broadway Baby


"If you can make the stars disappear, then- and only then- I'll believe he's never coming back."


The Canterbury Tales as you’ve never seen them before! Take your seat at the ringside, where the performers of the Franklin’s Circus are waiting for you. Using aerial acrobatics, puppetry, live music and dance, our quirky but lovable characters invite you to become a part of a tale of lost lovers, deception, trickery and revelry, told with the expressive colour of circus. The perfect way to experience the true carnival atmosphere of the Fringe, in an unforgettable spectacle. A journey of magic and discovery, appealing to adults and children alike.

Strung Up tell stories. Stories that are messy and boisterous and fun.
