The trouble is not that I am single and likely to stay single, but that I am lonely and likely to stay lonely. – Charlotte Brontë

Overview

In the UK, half of people over the age of 75 live alone and 9 million people often or always feel lonely. Is loneliness an epidemic? Should being alone be our greatest fear or for some of us is it a dream come true?

In response to Summer and Smoke, this Almeida Questions panel chaired by Matthew Parris with playwright David Eldridge, poet Cecilia Knapp, academic Roger Green and carer and social entrepreneur Angela Awuah dig into the reality of being alone and what it means to be lonely.
