It was the best of times, the worst of times ... and the greatest of plays. Lifeline Theatre presents a new stage adaptation of Charles Dickens' most exciting novel, A Tale of Two Cities. Set against the bloody backdrop of the French Revolution, two Londoners face impossible choices. Will the former aristocrat Charles Darnay abandon his family to protect an innocent man? And will the drunken but noble barrister Sydney Carton make the ultimate sacrifice for his unrequited love? Crowded with soldiers, servants, revolutionaries and nobility, A Tale of Two Cities captures the dangerous spirit of times not-so-different from our own. Souls are tested and guillotines are sharpened in this classic directed by Elise Kauzlaric. Learn More
