A Tale of Two Cities

In rather an odd happening, Terence Rattigan and John Gielgud's theatre adaptation of Charles Dickens's brilliant novel 'A Tale of Two Cities' is finally making its debut this Autumn. The version was created by the two theatre greats in 1935 and there was a plan for Gielgud to take the role of Sydney Carton, but the project was dropped before it got on its feet. Artistic Director of the King's Head Adam Spreadbury-Maher stages the production with only eight actors playing thirty characters.
