Using an English inn yard in the mid-nineteenth century, the playwright creates a setting which solves the problem of presenting the countless locations in this tale of London and Paris, and the ingenious use of four narrators (innkeepers) has helped turn one of the great works of English literature into a tour-de-force for theatre groups everywhere! In this stunning treatment, the premise and the characters of the classic novel are given full life and scope. There's Lucie and Jarvis Lorry, Sydney Carton, and the DeFarges; the tribunal and the guillotines; the riots and the reunions.
"The Cleveland Playhouse production of A Tale Of Two Cities could well mark the beginning of a new era in American Theatre. Bravo!" - The Gazette
