The Lowry plays host to a world première of Melissa Johns's debut play Snatched on May 13–14.

It will transfer to London’s Soho Theatre from May 16–18, ahead of a UK tour.

In 2018, disabled actor, Melissa Johns's iCloud was hacked and explicit photos released online. This is her response, a humorous and revealing show that displays no remorse in championing female sexuality, fighting body shaming and the taboo of sex and disability.

Salford-based actor Melissa is currently appearing as series regular Miss Scott in the seventh series of ITV’s Grantchester as well as making her West End debut in the Donmar Warehouse’s production of Henry V alongside Kit Harrington, which will be screened across to over 600 venues across the country as part of NT Live.
