Charles Dickens: OLIVER TWIST

Autor: Matea Kovačević, 21. 3. 2018.

TNT Theatre Britain presents: OLIVER TWIST, adapted from Charles Dickens’ novel by Paul Stebbings & Phil Smith, original score by Thomas Johnson

„Please, Sir, I want some more!“ is a famous line by the greatest novelist of the Victorian era; Charles Dickens, from his second novel „Oliver Twist“. The story centres on orphan Oliver Twist, born in a workhouse and sold into apprenticeship with an undertaker.

 After escaping, Twist travels to London, where he meets "The Artful Dodger", a member of a gang of juvenile pickpockets led by the elderly criminal.  The enormous energy of these characters and the full bloodied portrait of the first modern urban nightmare, London, make the story not only exciting and dramatic, but also truly contemporary. The themes and social issues raised by Dickens are as relevant today as they were when the novel was published over one hundred and sixty years ago. In the end, we are the ones to answer if Oliver Twist was at fault and whether he is a crimilar or a victim.

On 13th of March 2018, the members of the Gimnazija Velika Gorica English Club, with Mrs Ljerka Bačurin, visited the „Oliver Twist“ play by the TNT Theatre Britain and The American Drama Group at Scena Vidra in Zagreb. The play was in English so it really was a great experience for all of us and we had a lot of fun. What fascinated us most was the fact that there were so many roles yet few actors that would switch roles through the play and it was so well done.
