One of the darkest and most romantic of Dickens’ novels, A Tale of Two Cities was adapted for the stage by the dream-team of Terence Rattigan and John Gielgud, and now gets its world premiere in a daring production by King’s Head Theatre artistic director Adam Spreadbury-Maher.
In a time when governments all over the world are facing down political unrest and fierce protests, this revolutionary story has never been more relevant.
Retaining the thrill and tension of the French Revolutionary setting but merging it with a modern, East London aesthetic, the production reimagines Dickens’ dangerous and doomed antihero Sydney Carton as a member of the 27 Club.
