A Tale of Two Cities is currently touring the UK from 20 September until 26 November 2016. Each week we arrive in a new city or town, we'll be working with a new cast of people from the local community. We're calling them the Twelves! Why? Well, they'll be joining our professional cast on stage as citizens of this Dickensian world, either as unruly mobs or jury members. Twelve is, of course, the size of a jury! 

Some of the Twelves will be blogging about their experience and what's been happening in the week. It could include anything from rehearsals, getting into costume, meeting the professional cast or taking to the stage for the first time! 

Twelves, it's over to you!
