The Newarke Canterbury Tales performance was on Saturday 26th October, 2019 at 7.30pm at St Peter’s Methodist Church in St Peter’s Street in the Centre of Canterbury. What has this got to do with nidotherapy? There is an old Irish proverb; people meet, but hills and mountains never meet. Yes, but there are hills and mountains between people as well, and they can be removed by joining in drama. Changing your environment includes dozens of possibilities you may never have contemplated before. In JB Priestley’s Good Companions a group of people who would never normally have met join together to form a happy band of optimists who grow and grow as they perform in places round the country. The Newarke Canterbury Tales are supported by NIDUS-UK because they are very similar; they are uplifting and mental health improvers/mental illness hoovers, whichever you prefer. They take us back to 1378, not the greatest time to be English as people were recovering from the Black Death, but along came this guy, Geoffrey Chaucer, and gave everyone a lift. So we are updating Geoffrey a little so that you too can have a lift, can forget all about Brexit, which in 1378 was a form of chain-mail, and join the 30 strong cast in old-fashioned escapism. You can also buy the book – also Newarke Canterbury Tales with an evocative cover – if you wish at a knockdown price on Amazon from its sites around the world.
