The Oh Fuck Moment/I Wish I Was Lonely

Hannah Jane Walker/Chris Thorpe
In The Oh Fuck Moment poet Hannah Jane Walker and theatre maker Chris Thorpe examine the poetic guts of mistakes in a bundle of words and strip lighting. Fucking up is the truest, funniest, most terrifying moment you can experience. The oh fuck moment is a conversation around a desk for brave souls to hold their hands up and admit they fucked up, or for people to laugh at us because we did. A Scotsman Fringe First Award Winner 2011, ‘This remarkable piece of participatory theatre ranks as among the most absorbing and thought provoking’. Daily Telegraph ****

I Wish I Was Lonely is an interactive show about contactability asking whether the invisible waves we're tethered to might be drowning who we are. It's 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 are poems, there are stories and there is conversation. I Wish I Was Lonely sees the award-winning collaboration of Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe ask how much of ourselves we've given up to the new Gods in our pockets.
