Witch Hunt
Audacious Beings · 21. December 2022
I saw this duo back in October at Jackson Lane theatre. Life has been doing its thing and I haven't had chance to blog about it. Though they definitely deserve a place on my 'wall' of Audacious Beings. The show was hysterical, I am not sure that I stopped much for a breath.

Melissa John’s One Woman show, ‘Snatched’ was both hilarious and gut wrenchingly sad. Growing up as a teen in the 90s with a disability and exploring her sexuality was nothing short of challenging. Taking us through the ages Johns reflects on her past, both the good stuff and the bad. Fast forward to 2018 when her iCloud account was hacked and naked photos of her were released online, Johns was subjected to atrocious online trolling. To say I laughed and cried is an understatement. Johns...
