Winner 2018 Stage Raw Award for Playwriting

Time Alone traces the parallel journeys of a young man convicted of killing a gang rival and a woman whose son - a police officer - is murdered in the line of duty

Both end up in places of extreme loneliness ...

A solitary confinement prison cell

And the silent house of the bereaved

As time itself seems to unravel, their tales both contrast and mirror each other, providing answers to each other's questions

Until they find new doors to life

REVIEWS

"I was riveted sharp writing and observations In their haunted isolation, for all their differences, victim and perpetrator both experience time as a tool of torture. And then, in a twist I can't give away, they discover a connection that carries with it a hint of redemption" ~ Steve Lopez, Los Angeles Times

"Stunning Poetic writing An inspired two-hander that casts a jaundiced eye on the criminal justice and prison systems Camon employs the same grim nuance that was so successful in his Oscar-nominated screenplay for The Messenger His familiarity with the subject brings immediacy as well as emotional and psychological veracity to his writing" ~ The Hollywood Reporter

"Alessandro Camon's two-hander transpires in overlapping monologues between Anna Jackson, a traumatized shut-in whose police officer son was killed in the line of duty, and Gabriel Wayland, a prison inmate in solitary confinement. The characters - both sympathetic, both impassioned - hold forth about their radically different views on the nature of time, regret and the criminal justice system. Gabriel speaks from his cell, Anna from the prison-like home His drama comes full circle in a beautifully realized denouement that emphasizes not only our human need for connection, but our innate and sometimes surprising capacity for forgiveness" ~ F Kathleen Foley, Los Angeles Times
