A revered modern classic about life in the closing days of World War II.
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.
Stephen Lowe’s play was first staged at Nottingham Playhouse in 1977 in a production directed by Richard Eyre. It transferred to the Royal Court, London, in 1981 in a new production by William Gaskill.
