About The Show Information.

A Twist in the Tales is an evening of five short plays.  Whilst the plays were written a while ago, they are still relevant today: tales of deceit, fear, greed, superstition, ego and cowardice.  This table show will consist of:

A Matter of Husbands
A comedic drama, set in a theatre dressing room - an earnest young lady pleads with a famous Actress not to steal her husband.

The Dear Departed
A comedy set in the Slater’s parlour.  Two sisters argue over the possessions of their just-deceased father whose body lies in the bedroom above.

The Monkey’s Paw
A supernatural drama, set in the parlour of Mr & Mrs White.  A traveller visits his old friend and tells of the enchanted monkey’s paw that grants wishes to its owner but the wishes come with an enormous price for interfering with fate.

A satirical comedy, set in the mid-1920’s.  A woman of fashion hosts a dinner party in her New York apartment for a number of guests, whose numbers change several times in the last few minutes before it is due to start resulting in a very stressed hostess!

Box and Cox
A farce.  Two men unknowingly, thanks to a canny landlady, share the same apartment.  And the same, undesirable fiancée!
