‘Owdyado Theatre’s TWISTED CHRISTMAS!

(8 NEW TALES FOR 2023!)

Nasty but nicely comic entertainment…

“In ‘Owdyado’s twisted world nothing is ever what it seems.”

Lyn Gardner

Owdyado Theatre’s Twisted Christmas returns to the South-West this year, telling new tales, with its deliciously depraved take on the holiday season.

Featuring writers from Cornwall and across the UK, this selection of 8 original micro-plays includes tales of how to buy the perfect gift for your unloved ones, the dark side of Christmas cracker jokes, and why you should never turn your back on a pantomime dame.

Influenced by cult classics such as Inside No.9, The Twilight Zone and Roald Dahl’s Tales of the Unexpected, Twisted Christmas promises a darkly comic evening of macabre mini plays all with a festive flavour!

Watch the Twisted Tales trailer here (if you dare…!)

Twisted Tales is presented by Cornish touring company ‘Owdyado Theatre. They are well-known amongst their fans for their unique style of slick, detailed and comedic work. It will be performed by company regulars Connie Crosby and Charlotte Bister. Daniel Richards (one half of Cornwall’s longest-running cult Christmas show ‘Christmas.Time’directs the piece.

Ages 14+
