A Tale of Two Cities at Regents Park Open Air Theatre.

A Tale of Two Cities will run from 7 July 2017 until 5 August 2017 at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.

STORY

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?

CAST

The cast features Lydia Bradford, Sean Cernow, Claire-Louise Cordwell, Marième Diouf, Patrick Driver, Nabil Elouahabi, Lorna Gayle, Lewis Griffin, Nicholas Karimi, Nicholas Khan, Andrew Koji, Kevork Malikyan, Francesca Mills, Jude Owusu, Tim Samuels with Aliya Ali, Evie Buxton, Mia Dalley, Foyinsola Ighodalo, Kaitlyn Kou, and Olivea Puci sharing the children’s roles.

CREATIVE TEAM

Adaptation by Matthew Dunster. Directed by Timothy Sheader with design by Fly Davis, lighting by Lee Curran, sound by Christopher Shutt and movement by Liam Steel.
