Further Details

Adapted for the village halls of Teesdale, Laurence Sach brings theatre to the community this winter with a re-telling of Charles Dickens' ever-popular story of 'the parish boy's progress' from workhouse orphan to adopted respectability via the dark and sinister underworld of 19th century London. 

A host of vivid characters are brought to the stage - Oliver, the Artful Dodger, Mr Bumble the Beadle, Fagin, Bill Sykes, Nancy and many more - in a tale of villainy, hope and a happy ending.
