- Show me:
Written and performed by Melissa Johns
Directed by and co-devised with Lily Levin
In 2018, disabled actor Melissa Johns’ iCloud was hacked and explicit photos of her were released online. A young disabled woman with a history of body dysmorphia comes to terms with her body becoming public property.
This humorous and revealing show displays no remorse in championing female sexuality, fighting body shaming and the taboo of sex and disability. Snatched is a fast-paced, uplifting one woman show accompanied by a live 90’s/00’s soundtrack.
Melissa Johns’ credits include – Hannah Taylor in BBC’s LIFE, Miss Scott in ITV’s Granchester, Imogen Pascoe in Coronation Street and 2021’s line up of Celebrity Masterchef. Melissa made her West End debut earlier this year in Henry V at Donmar Warehouse alongside Kit Harrington.
Supported as part of our ‘Developed With The Lowry’ artist development programme and by Arts Council England.
A post show talk with the company will take place directly after the performance on Friday 13th May
