About Book
Kyle Kalke, an astronomer since childhood, a high school "science nerd," falls in love with flamboyant, outspoken, openhearted Zoe, who—astonishingly—loves him back. When she is kidnapped and murdered, Kyle barricades himself by devoting himself more feverishly to the cosmos 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.

Miami Herald

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.

NY Times

...a gripping, heart-wrenching, tender drama whose scenes shift seamlessly, character to character, past to present.

Portland Oregonian

Toni Press-Coffman's play celebrates the beauty of survival with eloquence and grace.
