Two planes in the sky moving towards each other very slowly. A speck between them. What a relief it would be to just see something. Anything.
A “romance for the age of anxiety” (Matt Trueman), No One is Coming to Save You takes place over one night in the minds of two insomniacs. She sits in the dark staring at a glass. He is watching TV in a language he can’t understand.
Made by experimental theatre company This Noise, it’s about the garish places our minds rush to when left alone. It’s about hope, violence and the wait for morning.
★★★★ “A dark, strange and yet quietly hopeful piece of theatre.” – Upstaged Manchester
“An off-key, quirky piece of theatre, with good writing and direction, and two surprisingly engaging performances… If you fancy watching something a little less linear and a little more charmingly illogical, then this is a definite recommendation for you!” – She-Wolf Manchester
★★★★ “A strikingly mature work” – The Stage
“A blazing debut” – The Guardian
“A romance for the age of anxiety” – Matt Trueman, What’s On Stage
