The Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection (AFTEC) presented the English Alliance 2019/20 prorgramme "From Page to Stage®: Tale of Two Cities". In March 2020, AFTEC had to cancel its annual production of 30 live performances of the programme in the Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre due to the pandemic. As a result, AFTEC turned this incredible show into a radio drama. We hope you will enjoy Dr Vicki Ooi's radio drama adaptation of A Tale of Two Cities inspired by Charles Dickens' novel, linking learning in English to the theatre and to life at large.
A synopsis and Learning Pack are available for further learning. This Learning Pack offers teachers and parents a wide variety of information to suit all levels that can be used to educate and entertain in the classroom or at home.
