Escaped Alone at Touch Theatre, Cornwall

All is not well with the world, and Sally, Vi and Lena have got something to say about that … not to mention Mrs Jarrett who has Escaped Alone to tell us all about it.

Since its formation in 2015, local drama company, Touch Theatre has focussed on drama affecting women. The company’s first production centred on the problems facing a young woman with cerebral palsy. Last year’s production, Precious Little, examined the world of a first-time mother in her 40s. This year they are presenting Escaped Alone a recent play by the celebrated playwright, Caryl Churchill. In it, four mature women talk about their lives, their worries and their friendships.

Escaped Alone showcases four engaging women who maintain the simple pleasures of tea and small talk interspersed with apocalyptic and increasingly absurdist visions of environmental collapse.

The play deals with the ordinary and the extraordinary, at one level exploring the fragmented nature of memory and the experience of trauma and at another looking at how the media is reporting and trivialising the effect mankind is having on the planet.

The play is touring round Cornwall from 23rd August to 1st September.
