About this show

"Later on, when he's not slept for thirty-three hours straight and he's stared so hard at the wall that it has changed colour and texture and shape, he will stand up and wish he had gone straight to bed, just gone straight to bed and not walked to the back of the flat and not walked up to the window and not seen it." An insomniac is watching TV in a language he doesn't understand; a woman is stood in a garden stretching her arms to the sky. The whole world is asleep and something extraordinary is about to happen. No One Is Coming to Save You is the hypnotic story of two young lives lived in social, political and economic fear. Hopeful new writing for the Matilda generation, it's a strange, funny exploration of what we're waiting for and why we're waiting.
