A new drama
about an age old conflict
SNARED, specially adapted for radio, was premiered across Africa and beyond in a synchronised broadcast on November 1oth 2018.
Originally conceived for the stage by Tim Marriott and written by Floyd Toulet, SNARED toured the South East of England in 2012/2013 to critical acclaim from a variety of individuals and organisations including respected wildlife campaigners Will Travers OBE, Ian Redmond OBE and Bill Oddie OBE.
The play explores the tensions surrounding the poaching of Africa’s wildlife; the topical issues surrounding the trophy hunting debate and the growing conflict between the needs of the continent’s people and its wildlife.
