What's the story of Alone Together?
“The grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break”
Colin and Angela are caught in no-man’s land. Silence stretches between them. Jonty is a young novelist searching for a deeper connection, a way to meet the lofty expectations of his demanding editor.
Driven by the loneliness of her dismal marriage, Angela finds comfort in an unexpected meeting, when she encounters Jonty on her usual bench after a weekly art class. Each with their own secrets to protect and pasts to lay to rest, a casual park-bench relationship leads to unintended consequences.
But was it really a chance encounter? Does anything worth having actually happen without design?
Who is in the cast of Alone Together?
Martin Shaw as Colin, Jenny Seagrove as Angela, and Josh Goulding as Jonty.
