Book A Tale of Two Cities Tickets at the King's Head Theatre, London

World premiere of the apaptation by Terence Rattigan and John Gielgud

About A Tale of Two Cities

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 (which includes Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse).

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.

The adaptation marries three of the finest artists in their own fields that England has ever known: Dickens the master story-teller, Rattigan the great playwright and Gielgud the mercurial actor. Gielgud intended to play both Sidney Carton and a number of other roles, and this production will realise that ambition – and show off the talents of an incredible team of performers - by having thirty characters played by just eight actors.
