Twisted Tales

Box House Theatre

"⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, Twisted Tales serves as an excellent example of the type of boundary pushing theatre that is out there if you know where to look." - The Reviews Hub
A group of thespians stumble upon an ominous book filled with grisly and gory tales.
Will the thespians be bound to act as the book's puppets, destined for a life of performing but never truly free?

Twisted Tales is a "visually stunning" Platform Theatre piece created by Box House Theatre Company.

A cast of six regal actors are confined to the space of a gym mat whilst showcasing four folk tales which all end with a twist. Platform Theatre relies solely on the actor's arsenal to create props, set, costume and sound to build the very world in which they tell their story. This piece explores the stories we all know and love, from Red Riding Hood's gruesome tale, to the Saga of the almighty Vikings, all in a way that you have never seen before!

Box House Theatre flips performance conformity on its head and introduces new and innovative ways of performing "boundary pushing theatre".

Twisted Tales combines theatre with comedy for all, meaning "there are a good number of laughs to be had". As an audience, be entranced with the intricacy, "tight transitions, effective soundscapes and carefully considered choreography".

Box House Theatre stands to prove that impressive theatre does not need a budget or excessive performance space to succeed within a professional setting. By using nothing but body and voice, you can experience unparalleled levels of storytelling. Platform theatre combines physical theatre, mime, music, and everything in-between to create the most unique theatre in the world!

With over fifty roles to split between them all, the cast of Twisted Tales includes: Lewis Evans (Ted Lasso) as the horrifying Wolf in the woods, Amy Fielding as the all-conquering King Alfred of Wessex, Eve Ibbott as Alice in the land of wonders, Sohail Al Mahri with his ever-flexing muscles as the Huntsman, Cameron Robertson as the grumbling Daddy Bear and Lee Taylor as the wide eyed, smart mouthed Cheshire Cat. Including many more notable characters, Twisted Tales is sure to reveal the dark and twisted side to your childhood favourites.
