Fans of the cult hit TV show Twin Peaks will be able to see a live stage version in London this autumn.

The Owls Are Not What They Seem is being billed as a surreal and improvised experience, inspired by David Lynch and Mark Frost's work. It visits the world in which the show is set and each evening will offer up a new mystery which takes place in the town.

The show, which is entirely improvised, is directed by Jonah Fazel and will feature a cast of London improvisers including Lucy Trodd (Showstopper: The Improvised Musical) and Dan Starkey. They are joined by Helen Foster, Alexander Jeremy, Simon Lukacs, Carl Batchelor, Victoria Shepherd, Jonathan Broke, Emily Brazee and Audra Goffeney.

The show will run on 6 October, 3, 10 and 17 November and 1 December at the Nursery Theatre in Finsbury Square.
