Set during the tumult of the French Revolution, The Reign of Terror, A Tale of Two Cities vividly dramatizes the intertwined fortunes of a French Aristocrat who reject’s his family’s tradition of terrorizing the lower classes and a drunken lawyer who finds meaning in life through an requited love. This new adaptation of the Dickens classic poses questions as pressing today as they were two centuries ago.

How does one prioritize loyalty?

Is violence ever justified?

What are the costs to society of a citizenry divided between rich and poor?

Can a single act of honor and love counteract a world filled with hatred?

And, in the face of war and terror perpetrated in the name of a broader cause, what is the definition of a life well lived?
