We are a verbatim theatre company.
We formed Snippet after graduating from Goldsmiths University in 2014. We came together through a mutual interest in verbatim. What excites us about verbatim is, firstly, the way its documentary style and realistic theatricality can transport an audience to the exact moment of an event, situation or conversation. And secondly, that it has the unique ability to engage with communities and raise real people's voices to the stage.
New project about gender, identity and expression
We are currently developing a show about gender, gender identity and expression. We are aiming to make a show that celebrates all expressions of gender and interrogates the social stigma that surrounds unapologetic expressions of gender that do not conform to social 'norms'. We want to hear your stories, so if you have anything to say about gender, or would like us to follow your journey, please get in touch using the link below.
Mood Kill on the BBC
We are thrilled that BBC London News has run a feature on Mood Kill, mental health and the importance of talking.
It takes everyone to deconstruct the stigma around mental health. We all need to be more sensitive about listening and offering people the space to talk. And we all need to feel more empowered to be able to talk and seek those spaces.
Support Mood Kill on Go Fund Me
We are raising funds for our new verbatim play, Mood Kill. For the past two years, we have been interviewing men from up and down Britain, confronting their experiences with mental health and suicide.
At a time when public debate surrounding male mental health has never been stronger, Mood Kill asks What next? After the debate has been had, what is life like for those living with this on a daily basis. In our latest verbatim play, real stories from across Britain are given the stage. Through intimate and personal accounts, Mood Kill questions how fractured and neglected mental health is in modern British society. This emotionally driven play raises the voices of these men at a time in our social conscience when talking is crucial.
