A Tale Of Two Cities

Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

Timothy Sheader directs A Tale Of Two Cities at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, a new play by Matthew Dunster adapted from the classic novel by Charles Dickens.

“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?
