The solo play “Snapshot: A True Story of Love Interrupted by Invasion” has premiered on three continents since its birth in New York City. It’s the story of a daughter’s search to find her father, missing since the Vietnam War. Fusing words, dance, music and film, this story chronicles the quest of a mixed-race daughter from Flatwoods, Ky., who eventually finds her homeless Vietnam Veteran father suffering in Hawaii.
Mitzi Sinnott, the only performer in the piece, was nominated for best actress at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland for her performance in “Snapshot.”
“The facts are teased out by Sinnott in a well-honed and tightly knit narrative that is so well directed you never see how she's doing it because what she has to say is so engaging and poignant too … . Many aspire to this but few achieve it.” — Thom Dibdin, The Stage, London, England.
“She deftly moves between the roles of unsure enlisted, worried mother, bullying schoolmate, scared little girl and confident storyteller. And she does it with humor and levity.” — Jessica Abrahams, Los Angeles Female Playwright’s Initiative
Mitzi received a rating of 5 out of 5 from every participant at the 2015 Kentucky Women’s Book Festival held at the University of Louisville. One audience member commented, “Excellent writing and acting! Loved her passion! Multi-talented. Fan for life.”
