Oliver

 

You will love the excitement of this classic Charles Dickens tale from Victorian London, full of mystery, intrigue, and murder which demonstrates how all the evils of that society (alcoholism, child abuse, gangs, thieving), were as insidious then as they are now. A true tale of how moral purity and a good heart triumphs in the end.

In the middle of Victorian England, Oliver Twist, an orphan boy makes his way to London after being thrown out of the workhouse for asking for more porridge. He is taken in by Fagin and his gang of girl and boy thiefs who earn their living pickpocketing. Oliver finds his wealthy grandfather and cousin but is still in danger from the evil Bill Sikes, the murderer and thief who fences Fagin's stolen goods, and who fears that Oliver will reveal his and the gang's identities. See Oliver prevail in this classic play.
