Polly Findlay directs the latest co-production between the Lyric and the Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse. Whereas Ghost Stories ran in Liverpool prior to the Lyric, Roald Dahl’s Twisted Tales opened in London first and it transfers the Liverpool Playhouse at the end of this month. The cast will feature: Nick Fletcher (The White Guard, NT); Selina Griffiths (After Life, NT, BBC’s Cranford); Alexandra Maher (Our Country’s Good, Watermill); George Rainsford (Days of Significance, RSC); Trevor White (Red Bud, Royal Court) and in the role of the young boy Jonathan Danciger (Billy Elliot The Musical) and Larry McCartney (Thyestes, Arcola).
According to press material: "In Roald Dahl’s Twisted Tales
nothing is quite as it seems; pleasant old ladies have sinister
hobbies, widows seek sweet revenge on the recently departed and a simple
gambling game has alarmingly high stakes. Expect the unexpected."
Twisted Tales runs at the Liverpool Playhouse from 30 March - 3 April
