The show presents 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? and How will two children’s’ TV presenters and a criminal-mastermind glove puppet dispose of a corpse before time runs out?

Charlotte Bister and Dan Richards have written Vindicta Games, the first short play of the evening.

They 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.”

With writing from three distinct voices, ‘Owdyado have collaborated with some of Cornwall’s leading theatre creatives on the show including Jon Welch (Spillikin and Cube Theate) and Brett Harvey.

As a film-maker, Brett normally writes scripts for the screen, when asked what is was like to write in an entirely different medium,

He said: “It was a genuine pleasure. Dan, Char and I have a very similar sense of humour so it was fun cooking up something for them. They immediately got the tone of it and every step of its development has been a madcap, joyous, bizarre journey.”

Twisted Tales is ‘Owdyado Theatre’s fifth show and is touring across the country throughout 2018 supported by funding from FEAST and Arts Council England.

Twisted Tales is in the Salberg at Salisbury Playhouse on February 23. Performances take place at 2pm and again at 7.45pm.
