UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.


Twist archiveIn 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. 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. Teeming with Dickens' audacious characters and invigorated by the writing of award-winning Chino Odimba, this retelling marks a bold collaboration for Theatre Centre, pioneers of new writing for young audiences. Rising-star Odimba has written for Clean Break and National Theatre and was shortlisted for the Bruntwood Prize. 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.

Book by Charles Dickens. Adapted by Chino Odimba.
