A Tale Of Two Cities says
Adapted by: Terence Rattigan and John Gielgud
Novel by: Charles Dickens
Edited by: Adam Spreadbury-Maher
Directed by: Hugh Hodgart
Performed by: 3rd Year Acting students

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." A Tale of Two Cities, Dickens' immortal novel of revolution and romance was adapted for the stage in 1935 by John Gielgud and Terence Rattigan, two of the brightest theatrical talents of their day. It has been modernised by one of Australia’s most gifted and imaginative young directors, the multi-award winning Adam Spreadbury-Maher. Retaining the thrill and tension of the French Revolutionary setting but merging it with a modern, East London aesthetic, this production focuses on the love triangle that lies at the heart of Dicken's classic story. WAAPA welcomes Hugh Hodgart, Director of Drama, Dance, Production and Screen at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, to Perth to direct this exciting ensemble piece.
