Leeds Playhouse in co-production with Ramps On The Moon presents
Oliver Twist – at home
A new play by Bryony Lavery
Adapted from the novel by Charles Dickens
Directed by Amy Leach
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.
This landmark production has been specially filmed for audiences to enjoy online at home. 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 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 deaf and disabled artists and audiences at the centre of its work.
Captioning, British Sign Language and Audio Description are all available and integrated into this production.
