One-act plays must be completed in less than 40 minutes, including set-up and take-down of sets. PHS is performing “The Canterbury Tales,” written by Lindsay Price and based on Geoffrey Chaucer's classic British Literature piece by the same title.

Travelling to Canterbury to pray at the shrine of the martyred saint, Thomas Becket, a group of pilgrims (a Miller, a Reeve, a Prioress, a Pardoner, a Cook, and the Wife of Bath) stop at an inn where they are challenged by their host to a storytelling competition. Three pilgrims - the Prioress, the Wife of Bath, and the Reeve - each share hilarious and entertaining tales. The Prioress reveals a moral within her tale of a vain rooster, his lovely hen, and a cunning fox. The Wife of Bath answers the question of "what do women want," and the Reeve seeks revenge against the Miller by telling a story of a foolish miller.

PHS, which has a long history of success in one-act competitions, won the Critic's Choice Award, Outstanding Ensemble Award, Outstanding Directing Award, and two individual Outstanding Acting Awards at the 2016 Wisconsin High School State Theatre Festival.
