Oliver Twist, The musical
London, 19th century.
Young people are considered worthless and cost more than they bring back.
Among them: Oliver Twist, 15 years old. Escaped from a work house then a family of undertakers who buy him for a pittance, he goes in search of a family he thinks lost …
In the city, it is not good to live without protection, roof, or money. Enlisted by a gang of thieves with dubious morals, Oliver is nurtured and dressed in exchange for some sleight of hand that old Fagin, stingy and strategist, inculcates. Dickens, a mischievous and cunning young thief, and Nancy, a kind-hearted damsel, bring him help and support in his family quest.
After an arrest for a theft he did not commit, Oliver meets Mr. Brownlow, a rich old man whose only companion is his maid, Rosa. This meeting could change his life forever, if only the vile, manipulative and devious Bill Sax, did not get in his way …
