Touched

By Stephen Lowe

Paperback £9.99£7.99

A revered modern classic about life in the closing days of World War II. This edition published 25 years after its 1981 Royal Court premiere.

Set in 1945 during the days between victory in Europe and victory in Japan, Touched follows the fortunes of a group of women in a working-class suburb of Nottingham.

First staged at Nottingham Playhouse in 1977 by Richard Eyre, Touched was so successful it transferred to the Royal Court in 1981 in a new production by William Gaskill.

Press Quotes

'Touched is truly identified with working people and a radical vision, unlike many contemporary plays for which the same claim is made'

Time Out

'Triumphantly repays a second viewing. It is a beautifully written piece effortlessly linking the private and public worlds'
