When a random act of violence rips her from his life six years later, Kyle's faith in the universe he has devoted himself to studying is shaken to its core. As Kyle throws himself deeper into isolation and despondency, his best friend, Bennie, and his wife's sister, Serena, struggle to pull him back to reality and to confront his loss. Told through a shifting collection of memories, this poignant and gripping drama explores the nature of love, loss, and humanity's overwhelming desire for a moment of connection.

"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.
