Charles Dickens’ A Tale Of Two Cities (2014)

Dickens considered his novel, A Tale Of Two Cities “the best story I have ever written.” Interweaving one family’s intensely personal drama with the terror and chaos of the French Revolution, it is an epic story of love, sacrifice and redemption amidst horrific violence and world changing events.

In an age when governments across the world seem impotent in the face of increasing unrest, this bold new dramatic adaptation by Mike Poulton (Fortune’s Fool, Old Vic; Wolf Hall, RSC) set to rousing original music by Oscar- winning composer Rachel Portman (The Cider House Rules, Beloved) seems more relevant than ever. It will feature one of the largest acting companies to ever appear on the Royal’s stage.
