>In an eerie house, where floorboards creak and shadows lurk in long
>forgotten corners, live two strange men - brothers, bitter
>enemies.... Cain and Abel. †Cain stalks around a house alive with
>mischief, inventing ingenious ways to do away with his little
>brother. †Poor Abel awakes each morning to find himself reborn,
>unscathed. †With their sinister and overbearing mother, Eve,
>dabbling with creation, this squabbling household finds itself
>ensnared in a fiendish and fantastical tale that scampers and
>tumbles towards a startling end.
>'...the most auspicious, exciting and playful theatre company in the
>region right now’
>(Artscene – Yorkshire)

>In a mesmerising piece that sees the buffoonery of Laurel and Hardy
>dipped in the atmosphere of Poe, Cain and Abel takes a gripping look
>at the darker side of family ties, sibling rivalry, the question of
>nature versus nurture and human cloning.

>'...packed with many delicious, imaginative tricks, weaving a world
>of dark fairytale.' (BBC Bradford)
>Twisted I combine dynamic physicality, puppetry, creative music
>technology, extended vocal techniques with a set filled with
>trickery to produce a textless, visual and aural storytelling
>theatre style to blow your mind. Cain and Abel fluctuates between
>the grotesque, the comic, the darkly atmospheric and the surreal.
>
>We hope you find the experience unpleasantly enjoyable!
