Modern Thai tragedy

There have been a few translations offered in letters to the editor recently.

My "Word of the day" today was "anagnorisis" - in ancient Greek tragedy, the critical moment of recognition or discovery, especially preceding a sudden turn of events or an unexpected reversal.

Is there a Thai word for this?
