"A Must for Family Viewing..." -Daily News

In this extraordinary production, storyteller Alan Bleasdale broadens to scope of Charles Dickens' classic tale of an orphan in 19th century England - and the characters who influence his destiny.

Oliver's mother, Agnes, struggles against the tragic circumstances that ultimately leave Oliver a penniless orphan. At the Parish Workhouse, he is by other boys to ask for more food, and as a result, is sold as an apprentice to a miserly undertake. He runs away and is taken in by master thief Fagin, who is in league with a murderous pair determined to see that Oliver inherits the fortune he deserves. Life twists and turns again and again for Oliver, landing him in alternately dangerous and hopeful circumstances. Oliver Twist is a drama of dark comedy, astonishing vivacity and soaring imagination, but ultimately, it is a story that celebrates the resilience and triumph of a little boy's spirit.
