OLIVER TWIST

By Jeremy Brock

The scene, the workhouse; the time, night; and the place, that cruel hole where miserable drabs gave birth... A boy was born there… I speak of one named Oliver Twist.’

An innocent boy falls in with a gang of ruffians in a dog-eat-dog world… but enough about the actors!  Dickens’ classic tale of poverty and pick-pocketing, privilege and prosperity is given the Jenny Wren treatment, as a small but perfectly formed cast unravel the secrets of Oliver’s past, portraying all the colourful characters he meets on his perilous path.  Expect laughter and tears, surprises and fears; but not Lionel Bart’s musical – we can’t sing!

Praise for previous Jenny Wren Productions: “Humorous and poignant, comic and tragic… a great night out” - Joyce Matthews, Gloucestershire Echo
