Saturday 23rd April
Performed live at Unity
Presented by Flood Theatre
Part of Unity’s Open Call
“It’s everywhere now; you tap a screen and suddenly you’re connected to 2 million other people in like, a millisecond. We don’t go the loo without taking our phones in with us. We consume information that’s broadcast daily from the lives of a thousand strangers… so why do I feel so alone?”
‘Touch’ is a piece of verbatim theatre created by Flood Theatre through a series of interviews on connection and belonging with young people in Liverpool. Following the pursuit of connection, ‘Touch’ looks at the ways we find love, create intimacy, experience loneliness, and ultimately find our home.
Creatives: Jessica Meade, Becky Downing
Directed by: Jessica Meade

We would like to thank Unity and everyone who donated to the Crowdfunder for enabling us to create this piece. We would also like to thank Paperwork Theatre for their teacup commission which contributed to Touch’s sister project ‘Have You Got A Minute?’, and enabled us to develop ‘Touch’ for Unity. We would also like to thank Gordon & Kirsten at Unity, Alex Ferguson at Homotopia and our mentor Ashleigh Owen for their support.
This performance will also be available to watch online approximately four weeks after the live performance. You will be able to book your Pay What You Can ticket for an online viewing following the live event.
