Have you seen actor George Johnston’s full-length playwriting debut Snapshot at the London’s Hope Theatre yet? If not, you only have a little more than a week left to do so as it finishes its strictly limited season on 10 June 2017. Here are photos and show trailer to tempt you…
“I was young. I was a bit stupid. We all were.”
London, 2017. Anything goes if you can afford it. James, a photographer, is struggling to tell Daniel, his banker boyfriend that he can’t get work. Daniel is finally out of the closet, but can’t talk about his feelings. Frank wants James and will pay for it, but doesn’t want his wife to know. Olivia just wants to be noticed. What is the true cost of living in the 21st century?
Snapshot lifts the taboos on unconventional relationships, and invites you to liberate (even if for one night only) your deepest desires for sexual expression. Raw, poignant and powerful, George Johnston’s debut full-length play is a triumphant exploration of sexuality, possession, and mental health.
The cast are: Brian Martin, Joey Akubeze (last seen at the Hope in The Wild Party earlier this year), Bruce Kitchener and Zoe Lambrakis.
Snapshot is the first full-length play by George Johnston, whose previous work includes Heart of Darkness. It’s directed by James McAndrew (Wild West End, The Final Act) and designed by Fiona Rigler, with sound by Jac Cooper and lighting by Tom Turner.
Snapshot is produced by Zak Khan and Zoe Weldon, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
