#Twisted #ScrewfaceSelfie


A world premiere by two of Toronto’s hottest young playwrights. In this modern day re-imagining of Dickens’ classic, Oliver Twist, Ollie & Nance struggle to survive on the unforgiving streets of Toronto. This two hander is told boldly, brutally and beautifully, by Ollie, an urban poet with an electric street voice, and Nance, Syke’s “bottom bitch”. CONTENT ADVISORY:  Darker than the original… but more relevant.
