Busy streets, laughter, the sound of children playing – but what lies behind closed doors in our communities, especially for those in later life, living alone?

Alonely is written in collaboration with Adam Peck  and performed by a group of community researchers who have been working over the last year on the Productive Margins research project with the Southville Community Development Association and the University of Bristol exploring the isolation and loneliness of older members of our community in the Greater Bedminster area.
