A Tale of Two Cities

Matthew Dunster's new play, adapted from Charles Dickins, A Tale of Two Cities in London for a strictly limited four week season

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us - Sound familiar? How much more do those in power think Europe’s poor can take? When will the people take to the streets of the cities and roar enough is enough?

Casting to be announced. Directed by Timothy Sheader.

The weather Every theatre performance is unique, but this is especially the case here at the Open Air Theatre where both the stage and auditorium seating are completely uncovered and open to the elements. It is therefore best to come prepared for all types of weather. It is particularly important to bring a jumper for the end of evening performances. Bad weather may mean that performances have to be stopped and be re-started but, on average, 94% of performances are completed each season. In the event that the performance is abandoned due to bad weather, no refunds are given, but you can exchange your tickets for a future performance. Performances are never cancelled prior to the start time. Please speak to a member of staff on the evening.

A Tale of Two Cities in London at the Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park public previews from 7 July 2017, opens on 13 July 2017 and closes on 5 August 2017.
