Main Stage Production

David Woods is a mild-mannered accountant who sees a sensational way of making a fortune by writing a kiss-and-tell biography about his venomous wife Sarah, the nation’s favorite actress from the hit TV soap Doctors and Nurses.
He then realises that his book will do even better if she is murdered first! Unfortunately, a few obstacles get in his way...

Twist is a hilarious spoof of the much-loved theatrical thriller where nobody is what they seem, and nothing is what it should be!

With all the ingredients you would expect of a first-class thriller, the cunning twists and turns will take you on a corkscrew ride of suspense and excitement.

And just when you think you know what is going to happen next think again, as Twist catches you out one more time before the breath-taking dénouement.
