'A Tale of Two Cities,' by Charles Dickens, deals with the major themes of duality, revolution and resurrection. 'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times' in London and Paris, as economic and political unrest lead to the French and American Revolutions. The main characters in Dickens' 'A Tale of Two Cities' are Doctor Alexandre Manette, Charles Darnay, and Sydney Carton, all recalled to life, or resurrected in different ways as turmoil erupts by the acting skills of Gerald Dickens.

Gerald is the great-great grandson of Charles Dickens, and he has especially penned a shortened version of 'A Tale of Two Cities' which will have its premiere during the Llandrindod Wells Victorian Festival.

This is Gerald's  fourth appearance at the Victorian Festival and it is an event not to be missed, so book early, for more information please go to the tickets info page of this website.
