General Description

Set during the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities revolves around the theme “recalled to life,” and how one’s choices can shape more lives than just the chooser’s. This classic tale follows the lives of fiercely loyal Lucie Manette, wrongfully imprisoned Dr. Alexandre Manette, falsely accused Charles Darnay, and morally ambivalent Sydney Carton. As paths cross and decisions unfold, the trajectory of the characters’ lives will never be the same.
