TWISTED is a contemporary retelling of "Oliver Twist' set in a stylized New York gay underworld filled with hustlers, drug dealers, pimps, and the downtrodden. A young orphan boy is befriended by a male hustler working for an aged pimp and fights to survive in this Darwinian demimonde.
"Donsky creates an urban underworld fantasy, a
stylized operatic fable of innocence and corruption."
"Strangely alluring, pigheadedly bizarre...this
scruffy queer-ish revamp of Oliver Twist has a peculiar integrity"
