Splendour by Abi Morgan
Friday 13th September at 7:30pm
How do you try to shape history when you are in the midst of social unrest?
Do you participate, observe, record events for posterity, or collaborate with those in power?
These are the fundamental questions for the characters in Abi Morgan’s ‘Splendour’, Touch Theatre’s latest production.
In the opulent drawing room of a Presidential Palace, a western photojournalist awaits the return of the dictator to take his portrait. He is late, very late.
The dictator’s wife, her best friend, and an interpreter wait with her. In a vodka haze, Prada shoes and light fingers tap out the time.
All 4 women harbour secrets and suspicions.
All 4 are in danger.
This is the day that revolution comes to the palace.
Abi Morgan’s devastating play allows us to glimpse into the minds of 4 women as they grapple with life, truth and honour.

About Touch Theatre
Touch was formed in 2015. We have an unashamed preference for female playwrights, powerful roles for female actors and the intimacy of small ensemble pieces.
Our award-winning 2017 piece, Madeleine George’s ‘Precious Little’, was very well-received by audiences and reviewers:
Hauntingly beautiful, and wonderfully paced and delivered
This director had the strength and skill to develop the story and characters in our opinion just as the writer would have wished
Our 2018 production of Caryl Churchill’s ‘Escaped Alone’ was described as:
‘A gripping piece of theatre’ with ‘some lovely comic moments’ from a ‘cast who were uniformly terrific’
I wish to say a massive thank you for the help and support we were given. Everyone looked after us splendidly and without a doubt a good time was had by all. The facilities were excellent and the evening a great success, please take a deal of the credit for that outcome.
Thank you so much for your hospitality in providing such excellent facilities for the AOTOS Access Day. We were very happy with the arrangements. The caretakers and catering staff were so approachable and willing to help.
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you. Everything went smoothly and we were very appreciative of you accommodating some of the last minute requests. You were on hand for the entire evening and many people commented on how wonderful the setting and food was.
CCC were delighted with the SBA Sport’s Centre for its Business Fair 2018 and received really positive feedback from attendees. Truro School’s team were very efficient and the space was transformed into a professional business fair.
