Snuff Box Theatre’s Blush depicts a variety of perspectives and stories centred around revenge porn and its impact on all involved. Using only two performers, the audience are drawn into the lives of these characters and the emotions they experience.
The play not only captures the trauma and pain of such horrific circumstances, but expresses the dangers, and often glossed over, impacts of the modern age of technology. It successfully identifies the lack of education surrounding sexual interaction in today’s society, and acts as a stunning insight that will hopefully start conversation in the silent age of screens.
Charlotte Josephine and Daniel Foxsmith put their heart and souls into their performance, creating an intensity in the room that emphasises the experiences they are portraying.
Blush is evocative, hard-hitting and deeply honest in its message – a must-see that will leave you with chills.
