Fleeing a cruel workhouse, Oliver finds himself taken under the wing of the Artful Dodger and caught up with a group of pickpockets in London. Navigating the seedy underbelly of the capital, Oliver’s innocence is never corrupted as he struggles to find a loving family of his own.
Dickens’ scathing attack on the harshness of Victorian poverty features some of his most memorable and enduring villains – the fiendish Fagin and monstrous Bill Sikes – and is a classic tale of good versus evil.
