Madame Defarge

A passionate re-imagining of Charles Dickens’ infamous female icon, from A Tale of Two Cities, illuminates this new musical by Wendy Kesselman.

This is the untold story of Madame Defarge, the woman whose revenge sparked a revolution.

Against the turmoil of the French Revolution, two men similar in face but separate in fate weave a story of sacrifice and salvation all driven by Madame Thérèse Defarge battling oppression with longings for love, freedom, justice, and revenge. C’était le meilleur des temps, c’était le pire des temps…

With the breakthrough director, Ellie Heyman leading the charge – Madame Defarge runs May 11
