'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



'Amy Guyler’s script is genius, masterfully balancing stark political commentary with bold theatricality'
A Younger Theatre

An equally exciting and terrifying work, with beautiful touches of humour: The Nobodies is one to watch' 
Upper Circle

A smart, gutsy story about a trio of vigilantes which is appealing, wonderfully engaging and with unquestionable heart.' 
The Review Chap



'An hour-long explosion of action and physical theatre...with the comedy they also give us moments of quiet, poignancy and fear'
London Pub Theatres

'Through exceptional staging and strong performances, it manages to be gripping, playful, and unsettling all at the same time.'
Theatre Weekly


'Tightly-focused, pacey and very enjoyable evening of drama which certainly proves memorable for its audience.'

London Theatre Review


'The theme is a timeless one of the people who have little, being exploited by those who simply, just want more. Well worth your time.'
North West End

'Enthusiastic and engaging.'

'With its Zumba tunes, satirical bite and lunchtime-friendly length, The Nobodies could easily become a hit.'

Sadie Takes The Stage

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?
