"Not to be missed"

"Funny and so sad"
"Will be remembered. Very moving"

"Combining live performance and film, KNOCK KNOCK dares us
not to look away."
"A very compelling and intense drama. Dealing with the subject of disassociative identity disorder it needs a lot of concentration as it passes from one character to another, but this two header merits it. The performance was excellent."
The London Audience Club
Premiered in 165 countries on November 10th 2018.
Originally conceived for the stage by Tim Marriott and written by Floyd Toulet, SNARED toured the South East of England in 2012/2013 to critical acclaim from a variety of individuals and organisations including Bafta award winning actress,
wildlife campaigner and co-founder of the
international wildlife conservation and animal welfare charity
the Born Free Foundation, Virginia McKenna OBE.
This production, advised by Dr. Cheryl Mvula and specially adapted for radio by writer and director, Floyd Toulet, further explores the tensions surrounding the poaching of Africa’s wildlife; the topical issues surrounding the trophy hunting debate and the growing conflict between the needs of the continent’s people and its wildlife.

"It seems the world is full of extremes. Those who shoot, kill, maim and destroy. Those who justify cruelty and suffering in the name of Science. Those who turn away at the first sign of trouble. Those who remain oblivious to reality. No one who sees SNARED could be left unmoved or ignore the harsh realities it presents."
