From those electric moments of discovery and connection to the dark hours of isolation, we all seek community and resolution. But sometimes the things that connect us are the very things we need to escape.
Sally Abbott’s I Think We Are Alone is a delicate and uplifting play about fragility, resilience and our need for love and forgiveness.
The play was commissioned by Frantic Assembly as part of their twenty-fifth anniversary and premiered on a UK tour in 2020 as a co-production with Theatre Royal Plymouth and Curve, Leicester. The original production was co-directed by Kathy Burke and Frantic Assembly’s Artistic Director Scott Graham.
