Why See Oliver Twist?

PlaysOff West End

Bold new Oliver!

Charles Dicken's classic novel is reborn onto the stage in this bold new adaptation from Bryony Lavery and Theatre Royal Stratford East. Brutal yet beautiful, Oliver Twist follows the fortunes of a young orphan whose escape from the workhouse sees him become entangled with a group of vagrants and a pair of unsavory characters in the form of Fagin and the vicious Bill Sykes.

Coursing through the streets of London this gorgeous new production will take its audiences on a dark and exciting adventure. Don't miss it!

Continuing its pioneering work with the D/deaf and disabled communities this production of Oliver Twist will feature the use of integrated creative sign language, audio description and captioning. This is a co-production by Leeds Playhouse and Ramps on the Moon.
