About: Sugar Snap

By Alex Cooke
Directed by Suha Al-Khayyat
Light and Sound by Steve Miller

On the 40th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality, Sugar Snap is a witty exploration of the first generation of ‘out’ older gay men. It focuses on the story of Frazier, a successful photographer stuck in a late-life crisis about his failed ambitions, lost loves and loneliness. The mentoring of a student awakens his creative flair and need for emotional attachment, but also sends him into a delusional state which unravels everyone around him.

Over the last 10 years, the Union Theatre has worked hard to earn its excellent reputation for supporting emerging writers and the company is delighted that it has secured the venue for this entertaining and thought-provoking production.

“Here under the railway arches it is the embodiment of the dash and swagger of the fringe.” Lyn Gardner – The Guardian

Big Fish is one of the London’s leading theatre companies for young people, touring ground-breaking productions and reaching an annual audience of over thirty thousand. The company has recently produced work exploring important themes such as childhood grief, peer sexual abuse and homophobic bullying. Its new sister company ‘Little Fish’ is now using its knowledge of young people’s experiences to create new theatre examining the lasting impact of childhood on our adult lives.
