A Tale of Two Cities
Originally set against the backdrop of the French revolution, A Tale of Two Cities is catapulted into East London, reimagining the thrill and tension into the infamous 27 Club (including Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse). At a time of political unrest, doomed antihero Sydney Carton’s story remains more relevant than ever.
‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us.’
Directed by Timothy Sheader, A Tale of Two Cities is set to have eight actors playing thirty characters. The production opens at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre on July 7th, playing until August 5th 2017.
