‘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’.
The Birmingham Repertory Theatre are delighted to announce a new version of Charles Dickens’ classic ‘Oliver Twist’, which comes to the REP in Spring 2020.
This bold, brutal and beautiful new version sends you on a dark adventure through the twisted streets of London. Adapted by award-winning playwright Bryony Lavery (The Lovely Bones, Treasure Island and Frozen), every performance of ‘Oliver Twist’ will feature the use of integrated creative sign language, audio description and captioning.
The production is directed by Amy Leach, and presented by the Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Leeds Playhouse, in association with Ramps on the Moon, following the huge success of previous shows ‘The Government Inspector’, ‘Our Country’s Good’ and The Who’s ‘Tommy’. Now in its fourth year of seven, Ramps On The Moon is a consortium of seven major UK theatres, of which the REP is a key player, committed to putting D/deaf and Disabled artists and audiences at the centre of their work.
‘Oliver Twist’ will run at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre from Wednesday 29th April to Saturday 9th May 2020, following a run at Leeds Playhouse from 28th February to 21st March 2020.
Priority booking for members is now open, with tickets going on general sale on Monday 1st July.
