The Artful Dodger

An irreverent follow up to Dickens' Oliver Twist exploring the adult double life of Charles Dickens' famous prince of thieves.

Set in 1850s Australia, in the lively colony of Port Victory, we meet Jack Dawkins, The Artful Dodger, who's transferred his fast fingers as a pickpocket to the nimble skilled fingers of a surgeon.

Dodger's past returns to haunt him with the arrival of Fagin, luring him back into a world of crime.

A greater threat - to Dodger's heart - is Lady Belle, the Governor's daughter, determined to become the colony's first female surgeon.

From heists to life-and-death surgeries, from soirées to street violence, this is a tale of reinvention, betrayal, redemption and love with a twist.
