A Frantic Assembly and Theatre Royal Plymouth Production, Co-Produced with Curve

I Think We Are Alone

By Sally Abbott


Frantic Assembly are celebrating their 25th Anniversary with a brand-new production, co-directed by Kathy Burke and Scott Graham.

Two sisters are estranged and bicker over text. Their brittle and aggressive language is pushing them further apart when what they really want is to meet, clear the air and talk about the events that happened when they were young girls and haunt them still.

Josie is not allowing grief to get in the way. All of her focus is on what is best for her son, Manny. She desperately wants him to fly but can she let him go?

 There is a person shaped hole in Graham’s heart and it is driving him to some dark places. When a stranger returns an act of kindness both find themselves opening up and connecting in a way that might just bring a bit of light in.

I Think We Are Alone is a bittersweet and funny take on our ache to connect with those voices we need to hear again, those arms we need to feel around us and those faces we need to see again. It is about letting go and holding on to what we love the most.

A delicate and uplifting play about our fragility, resilience and our need for love and forgiveness.


Starring Chizzy Akudolu, Charlotte Bate, Polly Frame, Caleb Roberts, Simone Saunders and Andrew Turner.
