Former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen's re-telling of Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist'.
Shona is the new girl in school and is finding it hard to stay out of trouble, much like the protagonist in the book her class is reading - Oliver Twist. When she’s given a new phone by a stranger, she begins to suspect there’s something unusual about the new boys she’s met ...
Rosen’s novel is adapted for the stage by BAFTA award-winning playwright Roy Williams with original music by R&B star Yaya Bey and BAC Beatbox Academy’s Conrad Murray.
“This was a very successful show and an interesting and refreshing take on a classic...Whilst the plot could be tightened up, it still provides a thought-provoking exploration of social issues in an accessible and entertaining way.”
