Aberystwyth Arts Centre Youth Theatre
By Charles Dickens
Adapted By Neil Bartlett
Oliver, an innocent child, is trapped in a world where his only options seem to be the workhouse, Fagin's gang, a prison, or an early grave. From this unpromising industrial and institutional setting, however, a fairy tale emerges. In the midst of corruption and degradation, Oliver remains pure-hearted; he steers away from evil, and in proper fairy-tale fashion, he eventually receives his reward — leaving for a peaceful life in the country, surrounded by kind friends.
Dickens mixes grim realism and merciless satire to portray the effects of industrialism on 19th-century England and to criticise the harsh new ‘Poor Laws’.
The Arts Centre’s Youth Theatre is conjures up a host of unforgettable characters in this contemporary adaptation of the Charles Dickens’ classic – Oliver Twist to celebrate the Dickens Centenary Year.
