About EUSOG Presents: Oliver!

EUSOG is proud to present their 2017 November show, Oliver! The Musical

With music, lyrics and book by Lionel Bart, this is a captivating tale of cruelty and murder, exposing the depravity, malice and villainy of 19th century Victorian London.

After spending his years under the sadistic eye of the lecherous Mr Bumble and Widow Corney, Oliver finally escapes the workhouse and finds refuge in London. He is taken in by a gang of thieving pickpockets led by the eccentric but manipulative Fagin. Plunged into a villainous world he has little experience of, he is exposed to the underbelly of the worst thieves and bad characters London has to offer. His desire to find happiness in such an unfriendly world sparks a chain of events that has some of Dickens’ most colourful characters questioning whether they really are beyond redemption and if, behind the false smiles and drunken illusions, all are simply searching for something, or someone, to love.

EUSOG’s dark spin on this classic musical brings us back to the bleak and sinister world that surrounded Charles Dickens in 1838. Our production will confront what you expect of this show, subverting the heightened reality of musical theatre and attacking your assumptions about the tale of the little orphan boy who dared to ask for more.

// Tickets: Full £12.50/Concession £8 //
