I Wish I Was Lonely, Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe's participatory show about mobile phones, contactibility and feeling lonely, came to ICT on Saturday.
The award-winning poet and theatre-maker duo brought their show, in which the audience are required to keep their mobiles on, up from Battersea Arts Centre where it is playing before a UK tour. They performed it to forty of our older members and took part in a brilliant post-show question and answer session.
The event was produced by our trainee director Angie Pena-Arenas.

#IWishIWasLonely was so cool. It really made me thing about how (for most of us) our phones are just an extension of ourselves — Otaku Cyrus (@C_Money96) March 8, 2014
