Sadie Frost returns to the stage for a limited three week run at Soho Theatre of Zoe Lewis’s follow up one-woman play TOUCHED…LIKE A VIRGIN.
In 1984 Lesley, an ordinary lass from Manchester is ‘Touched for the very first time’ by Madonna.
Thus begins a lifelong love affair until the world’s biggest pop star gets married and ditches the pointy bra in favour of twinsets and pearls. Lesley feels betrayed and the clock is ticking. What if, when you are ready to settle down, you find you’ve left it too late?
Zoe Lewis takes a gut wrenching look at the thirty something dilemma. Expect pop classics, IVF and tears in this riotously funny and wry look at modern womanhood.
