In a new adaptation by Anya Reiss created for everyone aged six and over, the story of Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist comes to life in Regent’s Park this summer. Making her Open Air Theatre debut, director Caroline Byrne tells the story of the most famous orphan from Victorian times in a production that will have you on the edge of your seat. You’ll be asking for more!
Robyn Cara, Rina Fatania, Danny-Boy Hatchard, Michael Hodgson, Daniel Hoffmann-Gill, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Shaun Mason and Angela Wynter play multiple roles, with Tia-Lana Chinapyel, Lewis Fernée and Jordan Nash alternating in the title role.
The famous tale tells the story of young orphan Oliver, beginning life at a workhouse and finding himself sold into an apprenticeship with a creepy undertaker. Escaping the funeral parlour, Oliver makes his way to London where he comes across the crafty Artful Dodger, who shows him the tricks of the trade of pickpocketing along with his gang, led by the masterful criminal Fagin. A story of falling into the wrong crowd and making your way out unscathed.
