"Whatever you do, don't let him kill you."

“Whatever you do, don’t let him kill you.”

Sweet. Cheerful. Incredibly handsome. Timothy is a husband to die for – no wonder his wife is worried.

Yvonne and Susan don’t know what to expect when their best friend invites them to a meeting in her cellar. But when Annette claims her perfect husband is planning to kill her, they find themselves drawn into a tangled web of rash accusation and rising panic. With Timothy hard at work in the kitchen, and dinnertime fast approaching, can the three women separate fact from fiction and escape with their lives?

Written by Offie-nominated playwright David K. Barnes and Michael Milne, Timothy is a tense black comedy that will keep you guessing.

About the company


Snatchback is a new audio and theatre production company dedicated to telling female-led stories. Building on the ‘equal representation for actresses campaign’ we champion female-led productions and seek to normalise 50/50 casts which at least equally represent women.

Snatchback is only just beginning, this will be our first theatre production. Our first female-led podcast ‘Drayton Trench’ with the Wireless Theatre Company hit iTunes earlier this year.
