About the Show/Event

A Tale of Two Cities
Information for A Tale of Two Cities at Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry (Play). If you've never read Dickens' 1859 novel of revolution and excessive gestures of love, then this is the show for you. If you have read it, this might also be the show for you, depending on how well you remember it. Dickens left a lot out of his novel, particularly when it comes to Lucie, the central female character. She was underwritten, all her psychological complexity left on the cutting room floor. This show picks up those offcuts and sticks them together, possibly in the wrong order, to rediscover the real story of this complex, troubled, funny 21st century woman. Part dance, part theatre, part fictionalised documentary, no-part costume drama.
