The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Oliver Twist: At Home is an online production from Leeds Playhouse in co-production with Ramps On The Moon, a pioneering initiative from seven major UK theatre companies – including Sheffield Theatres – committed to putting deaf and disabled artists and audiences at the centre of its work.

Born into poverty and misfortune, Oliver Twist escapes the workhouse for a life of adventure where he joins Artful Dodger, Fagin and their mischievous gang of pick pockets. But the enjoyment is short-lived as he falls under the influence of the vicious Bill Sykes.

This landmark production has been specially filmed for audiences to enjoy online at home. Bold, brutal and beautiful, this highly-acclaimed version of Oliver Twist sends you on a dark adventure through the twisted streets of London. Adapted by award-winning playwright Bryony Lavery, the production features creatively integrated sign language, audio description and captioning.
