TWIST

 

His home is dust. His friends are few. His hands are as rough as the seas he has crossed.

 

Humanising the anonymous plight of our generation, we follow one refugee’s desperate journey, buffeted between borders and bad company.

 

In a radical adaptation of Dickens’ classic novel, Chino Odimba and Theatre Centre transform Oliver’s struggle for sanctuary into a modern tale framed by the global phenomenon fast defining the 21st century.

 

Twist is one boy’s search for home among the nameless millions they call ‘migrant’.

 

Teeming with Dickens’ audacious characters and invigorated by award-winning Chino Odimba’s fresh and magical writing, this retelling marks a bold collaboration for Theatre Centre, pioneers of new writing for young audiences.

 

Rising-star Chino Odimba has written for Clean Break and National Theatre and is a winner of the 2016 Channel 4 Playwright Scheme. Theatre Centre’s first adaptation in over a decade, this reimaging of a Victorian masterpiece will challenge intolerance with compassion.

 

In a world where home is but a fragile thing and good fortune just a turn of fate, Twist is about having the temerity to ask for more.
