    'Precious Little'

    Written by Madeleine George

    This September, Touch Theatre goes on tour again, this time with a comic drama that deals with adult themes.

    The biological clock is ticking for Brodie,  a determined, focussed but detached Professor of Linguistics.

    The chosen donor ( interests include stand up comedy and kayaking ) has turned out a success, girlfriend is happy with the idea and all is set to ensure that Brodie’s superior genes  are passed on.

    But life doesn’t always fit neatly into researched plans and a trip to the zoo and a connection with a talking ape look set to change Brodie’s outlook on life for ever.

    What people have said about Precious Little :

    A crisp, fast-moving, tough-minded but often comic play about love, language, memory, culture and commitment - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    An 80 minute little gem that makes a big impression - San Francisco Chronicle

    Precious Little was originally produced by Clubbed Thumb as part of Summerworks 2009, their annual festival of new plays.
