". . .beauty, humor and pathos shrewdly combined into powerhouse theatre" – New York Post

A timid orphan in a seedy London workhouse boldly asks for a bit more food and is sold into an undertaker’s service. He runs away and meets the Artful Dodger, who brings him home to the kind, yet slightly sinister Fagin. There, Oliver is trained as a pick-pocket and finds a friend in Nancy, but neither she nor the boy are fit for a life of crime. Eventually he escapes from the clutches of the crime ring in search of love, happiness, and a home. The Vex encourages San Antonio Area audiences to explore society by producing intimate, thought-provoking works with local artists.
