What's On

By Chino Odimba

His home is dust. His friends are few.

His hands are as rough as the seas he has crossed.

In a radical re-imagining of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, we follow one refugee’s journey, buffeted between borders and bad company.

Twist transforms Oliver’s struggle for sanctuary into a modern tale framed by the global crisis fast defining the 21st century.

Teeming with Dickens’ audacious characters, this production marks a bold collaboration for Theatre Centre, pioneers of new writing for young audiences. Rising star Chino Odimba has written for the National Theatre and was shortlisted for the Bruntwood Prize.

Theatre Centre’s first adaptation in over a decade, this retelling of a Victorian masterpiece will challenge intolerance with urgency and compassion.

“A rivetingly fresh reinvention of a myth”  Medea by Chino Odimba – The Times

“Theatre Centre defy clichés”  – The Guardian

Suitable for 13+ years
