PRESS & REVIEWS
A brilliant surgeon can no longer bear to touch the living. Two voices connect fleetingly over the phone. A desperate mother begs to embrace her son one last time. A young woman seeks atonement.
Disparate lives interweave, intersect, collide and connect in the most unexpected of ways in Caress/Ache. This is our world – where some long for the electrical charge of human contact, others flee it, and lives turn on the smallest moments of random intimacy.
With Caress/Ache,Suzie Miller proves herself a most fearless playwright, revealing humanity in all its messy complexity. She is perfectly matched by director Anthony Skuse.
Please note that this production contains some nudity.
