This September, Touch Theatre goes on tour again, this time with a comic drama that deals with adult themes.
The biological clock is ticking for Brodie, a determined, focussed but detached Professor of Linguistics.
The chosen donor ( interests include stand up comedy and kayaking ) has turned out a success, girlfriend is happy with the idea and all is set to ensure that Brodie’s superior genes are passed on.
But life doesn’t always fit neatly into researched plans and a trip to the zoo and a connection with a talking ape look set to change Brodie’s outlook on life for ever.

Touch Theatre is a company of local actors, writers and directors based in Cornwall.
The productions we perform are very often non-naturalistic, allowing us to explore visual, physical and political ideas inspired by real life situations. Our approach involves movement, music and stylisation to enhance the emotions and dilemmas the characters face.
Touch Theatre has more recently concentrated on critically acclaimed works from established playwrights that portray feminist or political, social and environmental issues
