Bitter with a Twist

Simon Treves
Phil and Ted, out of work actors in their late fifties, share a flat, share a beer and share a joke. But is it the same joke? And why does the possibility of a blind date send them into a flat spin? Bitter with a Twist is a hilarious black comedy where fantasy and reality collide with frightening consequences.
