"Loners thrives in the details where it continually earns laughs... there are some truly good bits. It's good fun with an inspired cast."- David Duprey, ThatMomentIn.com

"Why socialize when there is perfectly good wifi and food at home."Lincoln Chalk, Lone-anon Graduate

When a group of eccentric loners is scapegoated by the government and forced into a ridiculous group therapy program as part of its war on violence, they must come together to stand up for their right to be alone.

A satire about an ensemble of eccentric loners caught in the middle of “The War on Loneliness”, a program created by politicians to stem the growing tide of violence. Forced to endure a government-mandated group therapy class called “Lone-Anon”, they are lead by a well-meaning but ineffectual therapist whose exercises become increasingly comical and unhelpful. As the loners are thrust into a government- created conspiracy to justify its failing program, they must figure out how to avoid being yet another introvert abducted by mysterious government ops. Forced to do what terrifies them most, they stand up for their right to be alone – together.

Cast & Crew

Loners began as Lone-Anon, a six character play written by Neil McGowan, which was produced at the Rogue Machine Theater in Los Angeles in 2013. After a year and a half of script development, production began in May of 2015 with an extremely aggressive 12 day film shoot. The film kept the six actors from the play and added 20 more (mostly friends of the producers). Loners was shot partially in Los Angeles, but mainly at the Saddleback College in Orange County. The shoot was a fly-by-the-seat-of-its-pants production.

As with most micro-budget films, Loners was shot as quickly as possible, but had a lengthy post-production schedule. This allowed the film’s themes to become even more relevant as a certain presidential candidate proposed culture after culture to scapegoat whatever problems the country faced. We are proud to share a comedic takes on our current political climate and the government’s inability to actually address the violence in our news.
