Cornwall’s Owdyado Theatre present a selection of original dark comedy ‘Twisted Tales’. These audio dramas, by writers from across the UK, range from 5 to 40 minutes in length.
The series includes tales of a vengeful A.I. unit terrorising its owner; a late-night radio DJ who starts receiving strange calls; two strangers pondering the nature of ghosts on New Year’s Eve; and a supermarket cashier who can read dark secrets in her customers’ mundane purchases.
Most stories in the collection are suitable for 10+ apart from a few that contain strong language (clearly marked). From 16th October to 30th December.
