Chester Storyhouse 

OLIVER TWIST by Alex Clifton 

4th December 2021  - 15th January 2022

Oliver Twist is born in the workhouse and brought up in an orphanage before being apprenticed to the local undertakers the Sowerberrys.

He runs away to London where he is befriended by the street-savvy Jack Dawkins, otherwise known as the Artful Dodger, and taken under the wing of Jack’s benefactor – the criminal Svengali Fagin.

Will picking a pocket or two for the wily Fagin be the innocent young Oliver’s fate? Or will the kindness of strangers win the day?
