Scenes from the original

Oliver Twist

as written and read aloud by Charles Dickens


A selection of readings from Dickens's moving tale showing how the so-called Oliver Twist escapes a life of poverty and crime. The grimness and hypocrisy of nineteenth century London and its nearly fatal effect on a lost young orphan is relieved by a curious set of circumstances and coincidences. In spite of an almost overwhelmingly bleak picture, unhoped for and unexpected human kindness saves the day. A case of "Who do you think you are?“
