Event

I Wish I Was Lonely
I Wish I Was Lonely is a participatory show about contactability.
A show in which the audience commit to leaving their phones on.
A show investigating what it means to participate in communication  or not.
There will be poems, there will be stories and there will be conversation.

I Wish I Was Lonely is the new show from Fringe-First winners Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe (following 2011's The Oh F*ck Moment) that asks how much of ourselves we've given up to the new Gods in our pockets.



Chris Thorpe is a theatre-maker. Hannah Jane Walker is a poet. Together they make award-winning work that is part performance, part poetry gig and part interactive experience. Their shows take place in rooms: sometimes those rooms are theatres, but often they're offices, meeting rooms, cafes  anywhere that people can come together.

Chris and Hannah's work is based around an honest encounter between themselves, an audience and the difficult but often uplifting moments we all face in the process of living. Their shows feel like a generous, open conversation, with poetry and storytelling at their heart and space for audiences to contribute in a meaningful way.
