A child gets lost in the inner city and falls in with a den of thieves. Hmmmm…Modern relevance meets classic theatre. Consider yourself at home as Dickens’ England come to life in OLIVER! the story of a workhouse orphan who escapes to finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets, led by the elderly Fagin.
