No matter how hard we try, we just can't get out. It's like we are not allowed to. Some give up and say, “alright then, if you won't give, I will bloody well take.” And you know what Shona, I don't blame them.

Shona and her class are studying the Charles Dicken classic, Oliver Twist

She's the new girl in school and is finding it hard to stay out of trouble – much like Oliver himself!

When she's given a new phone by a stranger, she begins to suspect there's something unusual about the new boys she's met

Unexpected Twist is a re-telling of Oliver Twist by one of the best-loved figures in the children's book world, Michael Rosen

This thrilling story was brought to vivid life by The Children's Theatre Partnership, and Royal & Derngate, Northampton

Directed by James Dacre, Rosen's novel was adapted for the stage by BAFTA award-winning playwright Roy Williams with original music by rising R&B star Yaya Bey and BAC Beatbox Academy's Conrad Murray
