Back Oliver Twist

From 28 May 2020 – 6 June 2020

Theatre Royal Stratford East

Born into poverty and misfortune, Oliver Twist escapes the workhouse for a life of adventure where he joins Artful Dodger, Fagin and their mischievous gang of pick pockets. But the enjoyment is short lived as he falls under the influence of the vicious Bill Sykes.

This bold, brutal and beautiful new version of Oliver Twist sends you on a dark adventure through the twisted streets of London. Adapted by award-winning playwright Bryony Lavery, every performance of Oliver Twist will feature the use of integrated creative sign language, audio description and captioning.

Oliver Twist is presented by Leeds Playhouse in association with Ramps On The Moon. Now in its fourth year (after the huge successes of The Government InspectorTommy and Our Country’s Good), this pioneering initiative from seven major UK theatre organisations is committed to putting D/deaf and disabled artists and audiences at the centre of their work.
