Oliver Twist (Online)

★★★★★ "an unmissable, extraordinary production" WhatsOnStage
★★★★★ "fluid and seamless" Yorkshire Post
★★★★ "this buccaneering production is a visual feast" The Times
★★★★ "moves like hyper-Dickens" The Guardian
★★★★ "an entertaining, embracive, necessary corrective" The Stage

Initially planned to hit the Stratford East stage in May 2020, the landmark production has been specially filmed for audiences to enjoy online in the comfort of their own home.

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.

Bold, brutal and beautiful, this highly acclaimed version of Oliver Twist sends you on a dark adventure through the twisted streets of London. Adapted by award-winning playwright Bryony Lavery, the production features creatively integrated sign language, audio description and captioning.

OLIVER TWIST is presented in association with Ramps On The Moon. Now in its fifth year, this pioneering initiative from seven major UK theatre companies is committed to putting D/deaf and disabled artists and audiences at the centre of their work.

Online streaming tickets are available from £15 sold via Leeds Playhouse. You will be taken to a new page when you select 'Book'.
