A Tale Of Two Cities

Charles Dickens 

Friday 18th October 2019 - Sunday 20th October 2019


It was the best of times, it was the worst of times….

Charles Dickens’ classic tale of revolution, redemption, and sacrifice is brought to life in this emotional and exciting retelling which combines the most memorable lines from the novel with fast paced and enjoyable stagecraft.

Presented by the University of York Drama Society, it weaves the stories of English lawyer Sydney Carton and disguised French aristocrat Charles Darnay, both in love with the delightful Lucie Manette, who find themselves increasingly swept up in the French Revolution, led by the inexorable Monsieur and Madame Defarge
