Live Lux Radio Theater at Its Best!
Starring the legendary Orson Welles as Sydney Carton and Rosemary DeCamp as Lucie Manette.
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of time ..." This phrase has been taken from the famous opening paragraph of Charles Dickens' novel, A Tale of Two Cities.
"Radio is what I love most of all. The wonderful excitement of what could happen in live radio, when everything that could go wrong did go wrong. I was making a couple of thousand a week, scampering in ambulances from studio to studio, and committing much of what I made to support the Mercury. I wouldn't want to return to those frenetic 20-hour working day years, but I miss them because they are so irredeemably gone." -Quote from Orson Welles to friend and mentor Roger Hill-
A Tale of Two Cities is one of only two works of historical fiction by Charles Dickens.
Dickens's famous opening sentence introduces the universal approach of the book, the French Revolution, and the drama depicted within:
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."
