Untouched - King's Head Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

A NEW play by Nick Huntington, Untouched: A Sexual Encounter, receives its world premiere at Islington’s King’ s Head Theatre – from November 13 to December 2, 2007.

Described as gritty, poignant and funny, Untouched explores the themes of asexuality and the nature of love. It also challenges society’s perception of and obsession with sex and sexuality. It’s Huntington’s debut stage play.

Ella Miller, a renowned photographer, is asexual. Her work reflects how she views the world but people see what they want to see. Her latest subject, plucked from obscurity, is Caleb Shaw – a sexy, cocky, aspiring model. Who could resist him? But Caleb has a secret… he will protect at all costs.

Then there’s Miriam, Ella’s mother who, grieving from the loss of her son, refuses to accept her daughter’s asexuality – Ella is sick and can be cured. However, the ‘cure’ is to have far-reaching and devastating consequences for all three characters.

Research suggests that 1% of the population is asexual and Act Naturally who are presenting Untouched, believe this is the first time the subject has been broached on the London stage.

Mary Greco directs a cast that includes Tracey-Anne Liles, Ed Fromson and Miriam Lucia.

Tickets: £5
