Today (Jul. 8), Diversionary Theater company in San Diego will debut their twist on the Charles Dickens classic Oliver Twist by performing a kinky S&M version of it on stage.
The play is simply titled Twist, and writer Gila Sand was inspired to sex up the classic after re-reading the novel as an adult.
She notes Oliver Twist is so starved for love hell do anything to please, including putting up with beatings a great foundation for an S&M fantasy.
In Twist, Sand switches up the dynamic between Oliver and Artful Dodger so that theyre now young men that are wildly attracted to each other and fall in love.
To add more shock, the cast wears elaborate costumes from actual BDSM stores, including fetish shoes.
Sand admits there have been several mishaps due to the crazy footwear, like the time an actress slipped and accidentally stabbed Oliver with her spiked heel in his lower region.
