Front Room Productions presents an original, promenade adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic Oliver Twist in Leeds Kirkgate Market.
After the death of his mother in childbirth, orphan Oliver Twist faces the world alone. On escaping his miserable existence in the workhouse, Oliver is taken in by juvenile pickpocket the Artful Dodger. He enters a dark criminal underworld of London thieves, where he meets the loathsome Fagin, vicious Bill Sikes and self-sacrificing Nancy. In a brilliant tale depicting Oliver's struggle between hope and cruelty, Dickens creates an unforgettable world of threat and mystery.
Come and be led around the magnificent Kirkgate market as we bring Victorian England back to life, and explore the twists and turns of one of Dickens' most famous stories.
