About this show

Inspired by the vivid world of Victorian music-hall, this staging of Oliver Twist -- adapted and directed by Neil Bartlett -- uses the original language of Dickens' novel to dramatize one of the most deeply felt stories about childhood ever written. A cast of unforgettable characters brings the underworld of nineteenth-century London back to thrilling life, all seen through the eyes of an astonished child. By turns comic and tragic, musical and dramatic, this adaptation was a runaway success in London.
