Description

Based on the book by Charles Dickens and adapted for the stage by Dwayne Hartford.

Set during the tumult of the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities vividly dramatizes the influence of historical and political upheaval on the individual. How does one prioritize loyalty? Is violence ever justified? What are the costs to society of a citizenry divided between rich and poor? Can a single act of honor and love counteract a world filled with hatred? And, in the face of war and terror perpetrated in the name of a broader cause, what is the definition of a life well lived?

Featuring Bill Mootos as Sydney Carton and Jane Staab as the iconic Madame Defarge.
