CHARADE

THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI

CHASE A CROOKED SHADOW

MEMENTO

THE PRESTIGE

The longest running play of all time is Agatha Christie's THE MOUSETRAP (running since 1952) in which the cast tells the audience not to reveal the surprise ending

A lot of TWILIGHT ZONE episodes have surprise endings (that's why we love it!)
