A Tale of Two Cities

September 3 - November 19

A Tale of Two Cities

Written by Charles Dickens • Adapted by Mike Poulton

Directed by Geoff Elliott & Julia Rodriguez-Elliott

This bold, fast-paced adaptation deftly streamlines Dickens’ epic story into a taut political thriller, giving a new sense of urgency to the intertwined fates of two men at the bloody, turbulent end of the French Revolution. Called “startlingly relevant” (Live Theatre UK), Tony®-nominee Poulton delivers a roller coaster ride of romance and adventure that still embodies the rich characterizations and eloquent language of the original novel.
