THEATER

MORALITY WITH WIT

At the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, the Royal Shakespeare Company will debut the first part of its two-part production of The Canterbury Tales.

In this new adaptation of Geoffrey Chaucer's classic, a series of colorful characters tell spirited, bawdy tales that provide serious moral lessons as well as wit and humor.

Co-directors Rebecca Gatward and Jonathan Munby will present the stories in different styles to reflect the variety of narrative voices presented in the original. The result is a lighthearted look at 14th-century English traditions and values.
