Vicky Jones' play Touch is about sexuality, desire and empowerment, following the sexual escapades of a thirty-three-year-old woman in London. It was commissioned by Soho Theatre and was first performed at Soho Theatre, London, on 6 July 2017.

The play is set in a tiny, cluttered flat in London where Dee (age 33) has been living for only a few weeks, having recently arrived from Wales after her long-term boyfriend Sam cheated on her. She has a temporary job and the chance to reinvent herself, which she sets about doing, primarily though a succession of sexual encounters: with Eddie, the controlling date she meet through a dating app; with Miles, the older man who can help her explore some of her darker fantasies; with Vera, Dee's buddy from the gym; and with Paddy, the attractive young intern from work.

The Soho Theatre production was directed by Vicky Jones with set and costume design by ULTZ. It was performed by Amy Morgan (as Dee), James Marlowe, Naana Agyei-Ampadu, James Clyde, Edward Bluemel and Matthew Aubrey.
