His home is dust. His friends are few. His hands are as rough as the seas he has crossed.

Humanising the anonymous plight of our generation, we follow one refugee’s desperate journey, buffeted between borders and bad company.

In a radical adaptation of Dickens’ classic novel, Chino Odimba and Theatre Centre transform Oliver’s struggle for sanctuary into a modern tale framed by the global phenomenon fast defining the 21st century.

Twist is one boy’s search for home among the nameless millions they call ‘migrant’.
