The story of the orphan Oliver, who runs away from the workhouse only to be taken in by a den of thieves, shocked many readers when it was first published.

"Oliver Twist" remains one of Dickens' best-loved stories, and is an ongoing source and inspiration for various musical and film productions. Reader Martin Jarvis is one of Britain's leading actors, well-known for his many award-winning productions in the theatre as well as numerous television, film, radio and audiobook appearances.
