Fagin Presented by Kick in the Head

Who was Fagin? Was he the Fagin in Dickens’ Oliver Twist? Was he the Fagin in Oliver! the musical? Was he based on a real-life character?

Join Fagin as he reviews his situation during his final night in prison before being hanged. As madness envelops him he struggles with the consequences of his past and is ‘visited’ by some old acquaintances.
