THE NOBODIES

WRITTEN BY AMY GUYLER

A town is in turmoil. A hospital is closing. And an MP is dead on the train tracks... Accident? Or opportunity?

When a local hospital announces its closure, panic ensues. 

 

Healthcare Assistant Rhea is forced to look for work elsewhere. Local lad Aaron worries about his mum’s treatment in the cancer unit. And Curtis just isn’t sure where he’s going to sleep. 

 

But when the three witness a horrific accident, a rare opportunity presents itself. 

 

As a dangerous decision triggers a wild chain of events, Rhea, Aaron and Curtis soon find themselves gathering power, influence and infamy – and inspiring a cohort of vigilante activists. 

 

What does it take to enact real change? And what would you sacrifice to keep it?

'The Nobodies' recently played a week run at London's Vault Festival from February 18th-23rd. It was selected as one of Lyn Gardner's Top Picks for the festival, one of British Theatre's Recommended Shows and was voted in the Top 5 Most Anticipated Shows for the festival via the Stage Door App. 

Press on 'The Nobodies':

'Definitely worth seeing. Full of swagger and moral ambiguities.' - Lyn Gardner

 

'Amy Guyler’s engagingly funny play The Nobodies reminds us that social discontent will have its expression...which offers hope that, even in the darkest times, the nobodies of the world can find ways to resist' - British Theatre Guide
