      By Karen McPherson - Director
This script of "A Tale of Two Cities" by Steph DeFerie successfully captures the essence of Dickens' original novel while also appealing to a younger, middle school, audience. The experience will be enriched with references to the French Revolution and France's involvement in the American Revolution. Ms. DeFerie has, as always, incorporated a good amount of her dry wit in the verbal exchanges and staging of this important story.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...Dickens' classic novel of love, sacrifice and the French Revolution comes to the stage in this faithful adaptation. Although written for middle-school performers, this version does not talk down in any way - it is simply a bit more accessible for younger actors and audiences. With almost 30 speaking parts and opportunities for any number of mob participants, this easy-to-stage epic is a great way to challenge your young performers, teach about a pivotal moment in history and introduce kids to the world of Charles Dickens.
