‘Owdyado Theatre presents: Twisted Tales

Twisted Tales is an hilariously dark triple bill of riotous comedies that reveal the darkness under the domestic, the lengths people will go to for love, and how to wash blood stains out of a carpet. Why have three strangers; a brash Bristolian, a Cockney wide-boy and an introverted blogger been summoned to play a deadly locked-room mystery? Who is the bandaged man, obsessively in love and held captive inside an upmarket flat, counting down the seconds until it’s time for HER to return and the “thing I can’t say” to begin? How will two childrens’ TV presenters dispose of a corpse before time runs out? All they have is their wits, their arts & crafts skills & a foul-mouthed, criminal genius glove puppet. Join us for an anarchic night of Twisted Tales and consider “how far would you go to get what you want?

For their fifth outing ‘Owdyado Theatre brings you three twisted tales from three distinct voices. Inspired by cult series The Twilight Zone and Inside Number Nine this series of dark comedies is co-written by Daniel Richards and Charlotte Bister (A View from the Edge, Above Bored) as well as distinguished Cornish writers Brett Harvey (Brown Willy, Weekend Retreat) and Jon Welch (Spillikin, Swivelhead).

Suitable for age 14+

The Touring Network is providing funding to enable us to bring new theatre to the village.

The Return by Ellie Stewart

An Eden Court production.

France, 1960. In the foothills of the Pyrenees, Bertrande tends to her livestock and mothers her young son, seven years after her husband disappeared. One day, a stranger, Arnaud, walks into her life and before long they decide to present him to the world as her long-lost husband – returned. But, is it possible that it really is her husband?

Inspired by the true story of Martin Guerre, The Return is a gripping play about the mystery of identity and the survival instinct, and asks whether we can ever truly know even those we love the best.
