Lost Dog's A Tale of Two Cities

Lost Dog, The Place & Warwick Arts Centre present A Tale of Two Cities, on a UK & International Tour in Spring 2022.

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. 

From the creators of Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me) and Juliet & Romeo, comes a re-staging of one of the bestselling novels of all time (allegedly). Part dance, part theatre, part fictionalised documentary, no-part costume drama, this is Lost Dog’s nearly unrecognisable re-imagining of a classic.

A Tale of Two Cities is co-produced by Lost Dog, The Place, and Warwick Arts Centre with funding from Arts Council England. Commissioned by Théâtre de la Ville, Paris; supported by Worthing Theatres, The Point Eastleigh and The Leche Trust.Further tour dates to be announced.
