About Together Alone


Have you ever felt completely alone while you were with others?

Or connected to someone despite the distance between you two?

What connects humans to each other or drives them apart?

Together Alone is a contemporary play that explores these fundamental questions with a musically charged script and a political twist. It takes you on a journey where you are invited not only to observe the -sometimes abstract- depictions on stage, but also look within yourself, and question the conscious or unconscious choices you make every day. This play, like any other play, can only be a mirror that’s held for you though. You can decide what to do with it.

Because the choice is yours…

Many Thanks to Our Partners

Our Team


Written and directed by English Theater Apeldoorn’s very own Tulya Kavaklioglu and co-written by Jean Paul Beumer, Together Alone was created based on improvisations with the whole team. We talked about and acted situations with diversity, identity, and (mis)communication themes. These were sometimes based on our own experiences, making this play quite “real”.
