Twist (stage play)

"Twist" is a comedy stage thriller by Miles Tredinnick. It was first produced at the Pentameters Theatre in London under the title "Getting Away with Murder". "Twist" has a cast of three men and three women.

The play is a spoof of the much-loved theatrical thriller where nobody is what they seem and nothing is what it should be. David Woods is an accountant who sees a way of making a fortune by writing a kiss-and-tell biography about his famous actress wife Sarah. He then realises that his book will do even better if she is murdered first!

There is a German version "Der Letzte Dreh" translated by Ursula Grutzmacher-Tabori and in 2008 Matador Books published a UK acting edition.
