Untouchable is a piece about endurance, resilience and survival. It’s about finding the courage to speak out. It’s about the hidden realities of everyday life that happen behind closed doors. It’s about the impact that domestic violence has on real people, a family, lives that matter.

Whilst tender and courageous, this piece has guts and grit. It speaks of an often unspoken reality and looks hopefully at recovery. It examines our health services, our government, our value systems and fundamentally questions where our society is failing its children.

Untouchable is A Contact Flying Solo Commission. This show is part of A Nation’s Theatre Festival – a celebration of UK creativity. Theatre-makers from outside London will be presenting and developing shows across the capital in April–May 2016. Supported by Apples & Snakes and Arts Council England & the National Lottery funding.
