A new production centred on one of British literature’s most famous villains will soon be taking to the stage in Bungay.

‘Fagin?’, based on the character of the same name from Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, will be appearing at The Fisher Theatre, in Broad Street, on Friday, March 2.

A theatre spokesman said: “This exploration captures Fagin’s journey of greed, deception and betrayal but also love and, ultimately, retribution.

“Whilst the show captivates the audience with its dark and suspenseful atmosphere, it is not without humour and wit.

“It even goes as far as to flirt with metadrama, breaking the fourth wall and even referencing Oliver! The Musical.”

Created by the Kick in the Head theatre company the show finds Fagin as he reviews his final night in prison before being hanged.

Tickets for the 7.30pm performance are £12 and are available by calling 01986 897130 or visiting
