Twisted Christmas

‘Owdyado Theatre's Twisted Christmas returns to the South-West in 2024 with its deliciously depraved take on the holiday season.

Featuring writers from Cornwall and across the UK, this selection of original dramas 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.

With new stories added every year, you’ll never see the same show


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!

Audience comments:

“As dark and bitter as the richest chocolate, this show nails the side of Christmas we all secretly relate’s slick naughty and completely delicious”

“I enjoyed all the twists - all were unexpected and really clever, thank you!”

“all the stories were excellent and would recommend to others”

Press reviews for other work:

“In ‘Owdyado’s twisted world nothing is ever as it seems” Lyn Gardener

***** “We cannot rave enough about this incredible show” West End Best friend on Twisted Tales

***** “a power-packed two hander” Broadway Baby on Twisted Tales
