Spring/Summer Theatre 2019
Award-winning new writing from some of the most exciting playwrights on the scene today
From the creators of the international cult hit Fleabag comes a shamelessly funny and brutally honest play about sex, connection and control.
Dee’s sexual escapades are messy and temporary – just like her shoe box London flat.
New to the city and in a stop-gap job, Dee has the chance to reinvent herself. But how can you change your life when you don’t know what you want?
Welcome to the secret life of a 33 year old woman.
Following the international success of Fleabag and the Verity Bargate Award-winning play The One, Soho Theatre and DryWrite reunite with Touch, a shamelessly funny and brutally honest play about sex, connection and control. Starring Amy Morgan (Mr Selfridge, The Beaux’ Stratagem, Hay Fever, and Travesties), with the full cast to be announced in the new year.
‘Sitcom in tone, sexual in content – and properly funny.’
‘Jones proves herself a comic writer of fierce talent, and her production is superbly cast, too. Totally recommended.’
‘This is for the generation after Bridget Jones, a sort of 50 Shades of Play (with a bit of Grey thrown in).’
‘Brutally perceptive…it’s also proper laugh-out-loud funny, and Jones has a lovely ear for the silly rubbish normal people burble at each other.’
