A theatrical adventure through the streets and back-alleys of Shoreditch

Written by Michael Wagg & Directed by Sophie Austin

 30th October – 18th November 2017

 A young migrant, Twistov, has gone missing in London. Inspired by Charles Dickens’ OLIVER TWIST and the experience of migrant communities currently living in UK cities, TWISTOV explores identity and home and who we become if both are taken away from us.

TWISTOV will start at RICH MIX and be staged in Shoreditch, the heart of Dickens’ East End, where faint traces of the past remain visible. Over the performance, TWISTOV will take the audience on a journey that asks us to see beyond the new buildings and trendy shops, to look down side streets and in doorways and meet another London. Here we will face our own sense of home and identity: what would we do and where would we run, if these were our stories?

Not suitable for under 12s.

Twistov takes place on the streets, so wrap up warm and be ready for the weather.

There is nowhere to store luggage, so only bring what you are willing to carry.

Latecomers will only be admitted for the first 10  minutes of the show.

Bring cash for the places you may end up…
