Homeschool Theatre Troupe steps into another era, taking children and adults into Geoffrey Chaucer's classic, "The Canterbury Tales."


Sponsored by the Sharron Baucom Dale City Recreation Center, the play follows a lively story-telling contest among a group of pilgrims on their way to the shrine of Saint Thomas à Beckett at Canterbury Cathedral. These pilgrims each agree to tell a story and the person who tells the best story, as determined by the innkeeper, will have his supper paid for by the rest of the group.


Travel back in time to 14th century England, then on to Canterbury with the Prioress, the Miller, the Reeve, the Franklin, the Pardoner, and the Wife of Bath as they weave their tales with ele-ments of humor, satire, ethics, virtue, and courtly love.


Performance will be today at 1:30 p.m.; Nov. 20 at 7 p.m.; Nov. 21 at 1:30 p.m. General admis-sion is $8, available at the door before each show, or at the Dale City Recreation Center. Ages 3 and under are free. Group ticket prices are $6 each for 10 or more tickets. Groups can receive special benefits too, such as reserve seating. A tour of the set and/or a question and answer period at the end of either of the two daytime shows is also available.


The event will take place at The Dr. A. J. Ferlazzo Auditorium, 15941 Donald Curtis Drive in Woodbridge.
