I Think We Are Alone, by Sally Abbott
From those electric moments of discovery and connection to the dark hours of isolation, we all seek community and resolution. But sometimes what connects us is what we need to escape from.
I Think We Are Alone is a delicate and uplifting play about our fragility, resilience and our need for love and forgiveness.
Frantic Assembly will present the world premiere of a new play I Think We Are Alone, written by Sally Abbott (The Coroner, Vera) and co-directed by Kathy Burke and Scott Graham.
The production will be designed by Morgan Large (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat [London Palladium], Wonderland [Nottingham Playhouse]) with lighting by Paul Keogan (Lady Windermere's Fan [Vaudeville Theatre, London], The Plough and The Stars [Lyric Hammersmith/Abbey Theatre Dublin]) and sound design by Ella Wahlström (Peter Pan Goes Wrong [Apollo], Jellyfish [The Bush]).
I Think We Are Alone is a Frantic Assembly and Theatre Royal Plymouth Production, co-produced with Curve. It will tour to venues including Theatre Royal Stratford East, The Lowry, Nuffield Southampton, Bristol Old Vic, Theatre Royal Plymouth and Leicester Curve.
Kathy Burke said: "Having been a fan of Frantic Assembly for many years I'm really looking forward to working with them as a co-director as it's something I've not done before. It's good to try new things when you're a groovy oldie."
Adrian Vinken OBE, Chief Executive, Theatre Royal Plymouth said: "Our creative collaboration with Scott and Frantic Assembly has been one of the most fulfilling and enduring in TRP's history. After over 20 years of working together I Think We Are Alone is our 12th coproduction. We are enormously proud to be associated with the company."
Chris Stafford, Chief Executive and Nikolai Foster, Artistic Director, Curve said: "We're delighted to be working once again with the teams at Frantic Assembly and Theatre Royal Plymouth, having previously collaborated on Shakespeare's Othello in 2014. Sally Abbott, Kathy Burke and Scott Graham are a formidable team and we are excited to discover what they create together.".
