The production will run from the 12th April until the 6th May.
It has been announced that the black comedy Snowflakes will be presented by Dissident Theatre, a company with the goal of making theatre which confronts the base, the repressed and the ambiguous corners of the world we live in, and Chronic Insanity, an Offie Award- winning theatre company, specialising in all things digital, interactive, and immersive.
Marcus and Sarah work for a very special start-up. They don’t work in a shared office. They don’t sell locally sourced, gluten-free coconut water. They do the job that so many people call out for in the comments section. So, outsource your rage, disgust and vitriol and let’s get to the truth before the media storm blows over. They may not based in a co-working space but they do have an app: Justice isn’t blind, it’s streamed to millions. Don’t forget to like, comment and subscribe!
As well as making his writing debut, Robert Boulton will also star in the production as Marcus, alongside Louise Hoare (Green and Pleasant Land, Arcola Theatre; Skin Tight, The Hope Theatre; Women of Paradise, Trafalgar Studios) as Sarah, and Henry Davis (Chariots of Fire, Hampstead Theatre/Gielgud Theatre; Jersey Boys, UK Tour 2014-2016; Hannah, Amazon Prime) as Tony.
Talking about the play, Robert Boulton said: “My favourite stories have always been dark, twisted and morally dubious – what that says about me as a person, God only knows. I want to make people laugh through the darkness; I don’t respond well to moral preaching or superiority and don’t expect an audience to. I hope Snowflakes is a relevant, if irreverent, riff on contemporary society, not just examining the problems we’re encountering now and where we might be going; but also asking where we want to be when and if we solve these problems. Then again, maybe not.”
The creative team behind the production includes: director Mike Cottrell, assistant director Oliver Graham, designer Alys Whitehead, lighting designer Jonathan Chan
videographer Dan Light, stage manager Maria Maracci and fight director Bethan Clark.
