Recommended Age:

This part-theatre, part-fictionalised-documentary, is based on one of the best-selling novels of all time (allegedly).

A nearly unrecognisable retelling focused on the central, but underwritten character of Lucie Manette.

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 retelling of a classic, focused on the central, but underwritten character of Lucie Manette.
