Bill Kenwright, together with his Theatre Royal Windsor, announce that Judge John Deed stars Martin Shaw and Jenny Seagrove will reunite for the first time in a world premiere of the comedy ALONE TOGETHER – a new, witty, tender and thought-provoking play by Windsor-born actor/writer Simon Williams, for a two week run from Monday 7 August – Saturday 19 August 2023.
Throughout six years and six series of the immensely popular drama series Judge John Deed, the on-screen chemistry between stars Martin Shaw (John Deed) and Jenny Seagrove (Jo Mills) was legendary and attracted close to 9 million viewers for its final episode. Their on-off love affair culminated in one of the greatest romantic cliffhangers in television history and, to this day, no matter what else they might have done, the two stars are relentlessly asked “is Judge John Deed coming back?”…. and it appears the door is still open!
Now Martin Shaw and his co-star Jenny Seagrove both return to the Theatre Royal Windsor in the sparkling new comedy ALONE TOGETHER, with 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.”
