I Wish I Was Lonely is an interactive 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 2013’s The Oh F*ck Moment) that asks how much of ourselves we’ve given up to the new Gods in our pockets.
“An excellently crafted piece, both thoughtful and relevant, which challenges us to take a step back from our technology-obsessed lives” **** (Time Out)
“A show full of cleverly-orchestrated audience participation” **** (The Scotsman)
Limited capacity. Advanced booking advised. Door sales cash only.
There will be a BSL interpreted performance of I Wish I Was Lonely on Sun 25th May at 3pm.
*I Wish I Was Lonely takes place in a venue that is accessible by a staircase only. We worked really hard to find a location for the show which was accessible for everyone, but regrettably we were unable to find one.
