It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... Through a talented cast and crew, a set encompassing two countries, and a powerful musical score, all the emotional depth of those dark times comes to life in a new musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’s novel "A Tale of Two Cities." Against a backdrop of hope and despair, reunion and separation, one woman's hatred seeks to destroy the lives of those around her until one man makes the hardest choice of all – to sacrifice his own life for love.

The pseudonym of "Grace Williams" was used to conceal the fact that the script was actually co-written by Kirsten Winston Dalton and April Wright. The original project idea was started by Kirsten Winston Dalton who composed the entire musical score. The final script was the result of over a year of editing and re-writing by Kirsten and April. Therefore, on all the posters, programs, and other publicity statements from the time, the script credit for "Grace Williams" is a pseudonym for this collaboration.
