Storyline

In a storm, in a workhouse, to a nameless woman, young Oliver Twist is born into parish care where he's overworked and underfed. As he grows older his adventures take him from the countryside to London, through harsh treatment, kindness, an undertaker, and a thieves' dens, where he makes friends and enemies. But all the time he is pursued by the mysterious Monks, who hires Fagin to turn Oliver into a thief. Oliver is rescued by chance and kind friends. But it's a puzzle of legitimacy, inheritance, and identity that Oliver's friends must attempt to unravel before Monks can destroy Oliver. Written by Kathy Li

Wonderful Production
3 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Oliver Twist is one of my favourite Dickens's stories, and this production is the best I've ever seen. The director has somehow managed to restore the dark and Gothic mood of the 19th century London. The cast is brilliant as well. Especially the villains, with Eric Porter as Fagin, and David Garlick as Artful Dodger. Michael Attwell as Bill Sikes also performs a superb acting, I've never seen any other actors who played Bill Sikes doing it so brilliantly. He manages to picture the real Bill Sikes with all the evil characteristics, beside his weak points like any other human beings, especially in the scene after killing Nancy. For those who like the story, I strongly recommend to watch this production. I think it is the most loyal production to the actual text.
