Twisted Christmas

20th December 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


“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 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 panto 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!

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.

This show is suitable for those 14+

Audiences on Twisted Tales Outdoors (summer 2021)

“LOVED IT, managed to make me laugh until my face hurt”

“Wonderfully witty and devilishly clever”

“One of the most visually pleasing, exciting, funny pieces of theatre I’ve seen. I spent a lot of time laughing or sitting on the edge of my seat. Go watch it if you can!”

“Beg, borrow or steal to get yourself a seat for this, it’s utterly delicious…Great cast, dark as hell, and brilliantly funny. Winner”. “Blindingly great night of twisted tales…such a fabulous and entertaining evening, I never see them coming!!!”
