Betty still faces a solitary New Year's Eve, ringing in the end of a dreadful year and with nobody there to help her celebrate. More than anything she wants to see her son Steven again, but with him stuck in Soho and no travel allowed, it looks like a lonely Hogmanay is on the cards. However, after a surprise call from Steven’s partner Martin, she might have more to look forward to in 2021 than she thought.
Alone Part IV will be available at 9pm on 31 December 2020.
Alone and Alone Part II were originally released as part of Scenes for Survival, the lockdown digital series created by the National Theatre of Scotland in association with BBC Scotland, Screen Scotland, BBC Arts’ Culture in Quarantine project, and Scotland’s leading theatre venues and companies, with support from Hopscotch Films. The series saw 55 dramatic shorts from some of Scotland's most exciting theatre talent released between May and September 2020.
