Oliver Twist Part 2
Monday at 8.30pm
On a dark and stormy winters night in a miserable, dank room, lit only by a few candles, Oliver is born into a life of poverty and misfortune.
His unmarried mother dies only moments later, leaving Oliver
alone in the world.
Ten years on and after growing up in a workhouse overseen by the awful Mr Bumble, watching the suffering and cruelty endured by the children, Oliver finally decides he wants more. He gets sold to the local undertaker, Mr Sowerberry, before escaping to London.
When Oliver arrives in the big city, vulnerable and scared, he meets the Artful Dodger, Nancy, Fagin and the boys and gets the first warm welcome of his life.
But naive and innocent, hes unaware that this kindness requires its own type of payment to be collected by the evil Bill Sykes. And without any other guidance, will Oliver be forced into a life of crime?
A chance meeting with Mr Brownlow and his beautiful ward Rose sees Olivers fortunes change for the better and the opportunity to start a new life.
But there are those unknown to Oliver who hold the truth to his real identity and are determined to ruin and destroy him.
