The play opens with a 20 – 25 min monologue. This is a wonderful challenge for actor and director.

About The Play:

When Kyle’s wife Zoe is murdered, he barricades himself by devoting himself more feverishly to his work and losing himself in loveless sex. TOUCH is about a man in despair questioning whether there is any point to rediscovering passion, risking connection, groping toward the touch that will rekindle joy.

“…a gripping, heart-wrenching, tender drama whose scenes shift seamlessly, character to character, past to present.” —NY Times. “So often these days, theater aspires to nothing more than sheer escapism. But now and then, a deeply touching play comes along. TOUCH is one of those.” —Miami Herald. “Toni Press-Coffman’s play celebrates the beauty of survival with eloquence and grace.” —Portland Oregonian.

Characters:

Kyle Kalke, an astronomer in his late 20s. A science “nerd’ – quiet but passionate.

Bennie Locasto, a doctor in his late 20s. Kyle best friend. Also a science “nerd” but more outgoing and quick to make a joke.

Serena, Kyle’s sister-in-law in her 30s. A strong, intelligent woman.

Kathleen a prostitute about 35. Hard but no so hard that her humanity can’t be reached.

Auditions will be cold readings from the script.

If you don’t fall into the age range feel free to send it on to your friends who do. Thank you.

If you would like to work backstage, please contact the director.
