I Wish I Was LonelyThis new show from theatre makers Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe requests that audiences do the ultimate cardinal sin in theatre: leave their phones on. Staged at the Battersea Arts Centre, I Wish I Was Lonely explores the nation's obsession with mobile phones. Through stories, poems and conversations, it questions whether our ability to be contacted all the time is in fact destroying our communication skills and killing who we are.
