Title: Leave Me Alone

Writer: Robert Casavant

Concept: “Leave Me Alone” tells the story of a young man conflicted over his place within society. He embraces isolation and finds comfort within solitude but recognizes societies disapproval of that behavior. He finds that the extent of social interaction necessary to avoid insanity is already present within his own head, which leads to reflection over the true nature of insanity.  The individual has chosen to embrace a “loner’s mentality,” and while he views it positively, he’s influenced by societies negative portrayals and connotations of both “loner-ism” and mental nonconformity. The individual struggles with contradicting belief systems and later expresses regret over his decision to avoid societal integration, but questions if he was ever meant to be anything else within a world where he feels so out of place.
