“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.
