About this show

Adapter Mike Poulton has given the theater a bold, fast-paced dramatization that deftly transforms Charles Dickens' epic story into a taut political thriller. His A Tale of Two Cities gives a new sense of urgency to the intertwined fates of two men during the bloody, turbulent time of the French Revolution.

The original A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. The book depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same period.
