When its stage production of Oliver Twist was cancelled mid-run last year due to the first lockdown, audiences were left wanting more.

Now, Leeds Playhouse is giving them the chance to join Oliver, Fagin, Dodger and the gang with a specially-filmed version of Bryony Lavery’s adaptation.

A co-production between the Playhouse and pioneering deaf and disabled company Ramps On The Moon, the production can be seen exclusively online from October 25–November 20. Money raised from ticket sales will help to fund next year's production from Ramps On The Moon.

Now in its fifth year, Ramps is an initiative from six major UK theatres – New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich, Birmingham Rep, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Nottingham Playhouse, Leeds Playhouse and Sheffield Theatres, with partner Graeae Theatre – committed to normalising the presence of deaf and disabled people both on and off stage.
