Alone Together

by Brengle, Edward Quine

Abstract (Summary)
This creative thesis in playwrighting is comprised of an anthology of four one-act plays, three of which interlock together to form a complete story charting the failing interrelationships of four characters, two per play. In "Alone Together," a man relives his past with his one true love and finds himself trapped in a reverie he cannot and does not want to leave. In "Alone Apart," a woman, the object of the man's obsession, deals with her own, confronting the mother she hates by avoiding her completely. And in "Alone At Last," the mother and father of the daughter meet again, with everything ending even as it begins. The fourth play, "At the Edge of the Water," is a short etude that brings closure to the overarching themes of the work, namely the fragility of human relationships and the limitations of memory, understanding and forgiveness in forging them.
