Aleya Twist is a modern-day female adaptation of the famous novel Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Oliver Twist is hailed as the first English novel that examined society’s mistreatment of its orphans and underprivileged children.
Komola Collective, in partnership with the British Council, has adapted this celebrated novel and set it in the context of present-day Bangladesh.
The story centres on orphan Aleya Twist who is born in a workhouse and sold into apprenticeship as a domestic worker. After escaping, Aleya travels to Dhaka where she meets Polan, a member of a gang of pickpockets led by the crime boss Rocket Jamshed.
