Snatched is a fast-paced, uplifting one woman show accompanied by a live 90’s/00’s soundtrack.

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.
