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.

Monday 30 October – Saturday 18 November. Mondays – Saturday, 7.30pm

Tickets £18.50 / £12 concessions / £15 Previews / £10 Tower Hamlets Residents, £5 students

Booking: Rich Mix 35 – 47 Bethnal Green Road, London, E1 6LA.

Box Office: 020 7613 7498

“Almost anywhere is a possible stage for this most creative of theatre groups"
The Guardian

"The play was superb. As an audience, the play really made us think: posing questions about how a just society can be made and sustained.”
After the Tempest Audience Member

“It is full of raggle-taggle invention, and its cleverness lies in the way it casts the audience as co-conspirators. You won't lose your head, but you could lose part of your heart."
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“Quite simply the best theatre experience I have ever had. I cannot overstate how moved I was by everyone and everything. Absolute pure genius on every one's part.”
The Odyssey Audience Member
