GRIPPING and hilariously twisted thrillers are coming to the stage next month.

Cornish company ‘Owdyado Theatre will perform Twisted Tales at West Lulworth on October 5 and Broadmayne on October 6.

Twisted Tales is set to be a darkly comic evening of three short plays brought together by a team of Cornwall’s finest writers and directors including Brett Harvey (oregion), Jon Welch (Spillikin) and ‘Owdyado’s very own Charlotte Bister and Dan Richards.

Expect gripping and hilariously twisted thrillers, inspired by the cult classics Twilight Zone and the hit BBC TV series Inside Number Nine.

In the skilful hands of ‘Owdyado’s lead actors and company founders Charlotte and Dan, the show will present three curious and intriguing stories: Why have three strangers been summoned to play a deadly locked-room mystery? Who is the bandaged man, obsessively in love & held captive inside an upmarket flat? How will two children’s' TV presenters and a criminal-mastermind glove puppet dispose of a corpse before time runs out?

Charlotte and Dan, artistic directors of ‘Owdyado Theatre, said: “Both of us like the strangers-trapped-in-a-room story format. And we’re not the only ones! We love that there is an element where the audience have to work out why all the characters have been invited and what their connections are. The locked-room mystery game seemed a perfect setting!"

Yvonne Gallimore, Artsreach co-director said: "Owdyado were a hugely popular addition to our programme last winter, and we are delighted to be able to bring their latest production to Dorset – it sounds thrilling!”

Twisted Tales is said to be an anarchic night of contorted, riotous tales where punters will be invited to consider “how far would you go to get what you want?”
