A Tale of Two Cities (stage version)
A thrilling, fast-paced adaptation of the classic novel, considered by Dickens 'the best story I have ever written'.
An epic story of love, sacrifice and redemption, interweaving one family’s intensely personal drama with the terror and chaos of the French Revolution.
This version of A Tale of Two Cities premiered at Royal & Derngate, Northampton, in February 2014, featuring a large community ensemble alongside the main cast.
Mike Poulton's adaptation is ideal for any amateur theatre companies, schools or youth theatres looking to stage a bold and dramatic version of Dickens' classic.
