Alan Bleasdale's eight hour dramatisation of Charles Dickens' best-loved novel.
A master storyteller, Alan Bleasdale affords new views and insights into the timeless tale of the poor boy who asked for more. With a generous but unflinching gaze, and inspired by the original text, he begins his story with the chain of events which lead to Oliver Twist's anonymous birth in the Parish Workhouse. The result is a drama filled with dark comedy, astonishing vivacity and soaring imagination.
