Because Ms Overo-Tarimo was unable to obtain necessary visas for her actors, there will not be a live performance of her acclaimed adaptation of The Miller’s Tale. Instead, Chaucerians will be treated to an exclusive showing of her film version of the play on Wednesday, 16 July, at 7:00, immediately after the Reception hosted by the mayor. The screening will take place at Tjartnabio, a theatre building opposite City Hall (the site of the reception).
Seating is limited to 160, so I advise you to purchase your tickets as soon as possible. Tickets are available online or at the door for ISK 2500 apiece.
