A Tale of Two cities at the King’s Head Theatre


Wednesday 25th September to Saturday 19th October 2013.

Quote promotional code VAI for a discount on your tickets.

One of the darkest and most romantic of Dickens’ novels, A Tale of Two Cities was adapted for the stage by the dream-team of Terence Rattigan and John Gielgud, and now gets its world premiere in a daring production by King’s Head Theatre artistic director Adam Spreadbury-Maher.

Retaining the thrill and tension of the French Revolutionary setting but merging it with a modern, East London aesthetic, the production reimagines Dickens’ dangerous and doomed antihero Sydney Carton as a member of the 27 Club (which includes Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse).

Tickets to the show are available to Voluntary Action Islington friends and supporters at a flat rate of £20 (normally £20.50-£25). Every ticket bought by a Voluntary Action Islington supporter will bring a donation of £8 to us! This offer is valid for all performances from 25th September.

For more information and to book your ticket visit  or call 020 7478 0160.

Remember to enter the code VAI in the promotional code box when booking on-line or to quote it when booking on the phone.

We hope that many of you will take up this opportunity to raise money for Voluntary Action Islington and enjoy a trip to the theatre in the process!
