Lost Dog

A Tale of Two Cities

This is a past event which has now ended.

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.

Dickens left a lot out of his novel, particularly when it comes to Lucie, the central female character.  She was underwritten, all her psychological complexity left on the cutting room floor.  This show picks up those offcuts and sticks them together, possibly in the wrong order, to rediscover the real story of this complex, troubled, funny 21st century woman.

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 re-imagining of a classic.

‘★★★★★ Pure pleasure. Smart, subversive and sexy’ – The Guardian, Juliet & Romeo

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
