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.
Playwright and former human rights lawyer, Suzie Miller, takes us through her experience in writing her new play Caress/Ache, which has its world premiere at Griffin on 27 February.
Fearless playwright Suzie Miller back with profoundly moving work Caress/Ache.
