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 Youtakes 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. 

Praise for No One Is Coming To Save You

Part of The Best Shows at the Edinburgh Festival 2018 by The Guardian

Picked as One of the Four Theatre Shows to see at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018 by Skinny Mag

Shortlisted for the Charlie Hartill Reserve Fund in 2018.

‘Under the skilfully subtle direction of Charlotte Fraser, Ellis lights up the layer between reality and what we see. … The intensity never lets up’

THE GUARDIAN

★★★★ ‘Ellis’ writing is dense and lyrical, full of shimmering turns of phrases. This is a strikingly mature work from a young company to watch.’

THE STAGE

‘Charlotte Fraser’s production fosters a neat sense of unease.’

WHAT’S ON STAGE

“There’s a core of sweetness to No One is Coming to Save You that edges it out from the rest … A tentative, knowingly misplaced optimism that the show gently ends on.’

EXEUNT

★★★★ ‘Elwes and Mdlongwa expertly suck you in … Vivid images in your mind well after the final bows’
