Twisted Christmas

All over Cornwall

Not a fan of panto? Then Owdyado Theatre’s ‘Twisted Christmas’ might be your cup of tea. The Cornish theatre company’s deliciously depraved take on the holiday season is being performed at venues throughout Cornwall in November from Falmouth to Bodmin. 

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!
