His home is dust. His friends are few. His hands are as rough as the seas he has crossed.
In a radical re-imagining of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, we follow one refugee’s journey, buffeted between borders and bad company.
Twist transforms Oliver’s struggle for sanctuary into a modern tale framed by the global crisis fast defining the 21st century.
Teeming with Dickens’ audacious characters, this production marks a bold collaboration for Theatre Centre, pioneers of new writing for young audiences. Rising-star Chino Odimba has written for National Theatre and was shortlisted for the Bruntwood Prize.
Theatre Centre’s first adaptation in over a decade, this retelling of a Victorian masterpiece will challenge intolerance with urgency and compassion.
