Our world has never been more connected. So why is it that an increasing number of people feel isolated and alone? I’m Standing Next To You is an award-winning promenade play that invites audiences to become part of a lonely crowd, imagining what would happen if strangers suddenly decided to talk to each other honestly about their lives, rather than the edited version we all think people want to see.
Ages 16+. 1 hour. In the OFS Loft. £8.
Please note that there is no step-free access to the Loft.

“An intelligent and well-staged effort to address a social problem that can easily be overlooked or trivialised.” – Manchester Theatre Awards
