Our project for 2020 is a fantastically brutal and dark play version of Oliver Twist by Anya Reiss, a writer who exploded from the Royal Court in 2010 with SPUR OF THE MOMENT which we produced in 2018 and was met with fantatic reviews.

Reiss has taken the original novel by Dickens and created a sharp, visceral fluid version which requires a great deal from it's company of actors, each one taking on a couple of roles in this highly physical piece of theatre.

We are looking to cast 4 young actors between ages 8 and 19 who will then be supported by 5 adult actors. This is a training and performance opportunity for the entire company and is appropriate for amateur and semi professional actors looking to gain more stage experience.

This production will start it's life at The Alma Tavern Theatre in Bristol from 16th - 22nd February 2020 with rehearsals starting in October 2019. We will then go on to compete at the Henley Drama Festival with the possibility of taking it to the Isle of Man Theatre Festival. Finally we will perform in Swindon in July 2020.
