OLIVER TWIST A DARK RE-IMAGINING OF DICKENS CLASSIC TALE
“Once let him feel that he is one of us; once fill his mind with the idea that he has been a thief, and he’s ours… ours for his life.” – Fagin
Our story begins in a workhouse as life and death meet for a moment. Here, young Oliver Twist is cruelly raised with an iron fist and finds himself on a twisted path led by a rag tag of unscrupulous sinners, murderous crooks and fiendish reprobates. Oliver meets an unlikely ally in Jack Dawkins, otherwise known as the Artful Dodger, and soon under the guidance of the morally repugnant Fagin, Oliver spirals deep into a world that is dark, perilous and all that’s bad. This story you know – see it anew in it’s hard-hitting, brutal and yet sombrely beautiful form as it would’ve been intended. 1956 have created an intimate, ensemble adaptation of Dickens’ beloved tale that is certain to thrill, charm and tug at the iciest of heart strings. Don’t miss it.
