We are back on for brand-new biting black comedy Snowflakes, for which I was originally due to chair a post-show Q&A in April 2020. The inaugural play from Dissident Theatre Company now premieres this autumn at the Old Red Lion Theatre.

“Think of us like the active hand of impotent rage.”

Marcus and Sarah work for a very special type of start-up. They don’t have a co-working space. They don’t sell locally-sourced, gluten-free coconut water. What they do is feed a need, your needs. They give us the tools to help dispense with this old, dying world. This is their world, don’t deny your place in it… Like, comment, subscribe!

Marcus is the poster boy for the company, hand-picked by management for his commitment to the cause. Sarah has moved up from Brand Recognition. Media personality Tony is their newest project – he just doesn’t know it yet. Today, justice isn’t blind, it’s streamed to millions.

The Dumb Waiter meets Black Mirror at a WeWork.

Snowflakes is written by Robert Boulton, who also stars alongside Niamh Finlay and Henry Davis and who co-founded Dissident Theatre Company with director Mike Cottrell.

Cottrell says of Snowflakes: “We speculated that it would be fascinating to delve into the darker sides of the human experience and what we realised quickly is the frightening fact that you don’t have to delve too deep to find that in the world right now. The constant flood of doubt in our politicians, in our media, in our own consciences can seem overwhelming and hard to comprehend. We wanted to take that feeling and explore what lengths people will go to find meaning and to purpose in a chaotic world.”

Following the 7.30pm performance on Friday 1 October 2021, I’ll talk to Snowflakes writer, director and cast. Any questions? Join us!
