I Think We Are Alone

I Think We Are Alone


★★★★★ “Poignant, funny and uplifting… Frantic Assembly at their best.” Wirral Globe
★★★★ "An of-the-moment drama about the power of everyday kindness." Herald Scotland
★★★★ “A compelling tale… the message is one of hope” Liverpool Echo
"A tender sweep of a show... Frantic Assembly are among the most influential British companies for movement." The Guardian

Frantic Assembly are celebrating their 25th anniversary with a brand new production, I THINK WE ARE ALONE by Sally Abbott, 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 that 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's 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. There is beauty in this. This was meant to happen! 

I THINK WE ARE ALONE is a bitter sweet 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.

I THINK WE ARE ALONE is a delicate and uplifting play about our fragility, resilience and our need for love and forgiveness.

A Frantic Assembly and Theatre Royal Plymouth Production, co-produced with Curve, Leicester
