Judge John Deed stars Martin Shaw and Jenny Seagrove will reunite for the first time fort the new, witty, tender and thought-provoking play by Windsor-born actor/writer Simon Williams.

The production from Bill Kenwright will run from Monday 7 August – Saturday 26 August 2023.

Also on the cast is Josh Goulding (Hangman – Broadway, Love And Other Acts of Violence – Donmar Warehouse) making his Windsor debut.

Alone Together sizzles as Colin (Martin Shaw) and Angela (Jenny Seagrove) battle together on the verge of their disastrous marriage. And then in a serendipitous moment, Angela meets Jonty (Josh Goulding) on her favourite bench, under the cedar tree in the churchyard and everything starts to unravel….

Three people looking for pathways to excitement, fulfilment and freedom; but what is real and who is real? Was it a chance meeting? What does the young novelist want? And who exactly is manipulating whom – or not? In a world where you can be anyone on social media, can you really escape reality in real life? With secrets to protect and unintended consequences, will they be together alone or Alone Together

Martin Shaw said: “I love working at the Windsor Theatre Royal, and my old mate Jenny and me just have the most brilliant working relationship. I love the challenge of bringing a new play to life, and in Alone Together it’s two people trying to find themselves and each other.”

Director Sean Mathias added: “An exquisite piece of new writing is so exciting and Alone Together explores the fragility and joy of relationships in all their different forms, and what forges and strengthens bonds between humans, at a time when more than ever, we all need to love and support one another.”
