Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins (Caroline, or Change) will star in the world premiere of Time Alone, the inaugural production of the Belle Rêve Theatre Company. The play is written by Alessandro Camon, who is best known as the Oscar-nominated co-screenwriter of Oren Moverman's 2009 drama The Messenger, among other film writing and producing credits.

Pinkins stars as Anna Jackson alongside Alex Hernandez (Peter and the Starcatcher) as Gabriel Wayland in the production directed by Bart DeLorenzo. It will run September 30-October 29 at Los Angeles Theatre Center, with opening night set for October 7.

According to a press release, "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."

The creative team for Time Alone includes Francois-Pierre Couture (scenic design), Pablo Santiago-Brandwein (lighting design), John Zalewski (sound design), Keith Skretch (projection design), Ingrid Ferrin (costume design), Gabe Figueroa (production manager), Wayne Nakasone (technical director), and Beth Lipardi (casting).

The Belle Rêve Theatre Company was founded in 2017 by Michelle M. Núñez and aims to "introduce previously underserved audiences to new productions that elevate the civic discourse, enrich the human spirit, and foster greater understanding of others."
