Kim Noble

You're Not Alone

Presented by Contact, Word of Warning + SICK! Festival

In Brief

A darkly comic take on one man’s attempts at connection, friendship and employment at B&Q. See the trailer.

Through tower block, supermarket and Facebook, Kim seeks an escape from the loneliness of modern society and tries to get close to others. Too close, maybe…

Now that it’s over, read reviews from Reviews Hub (★★★★), North West End + Edwina McEachran.

Blending performance, comedy and film, Kim Noble tries to get close to other people on this planet. Keith for instance. You maybe.

We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.
Orson Welles.

Provocative, moving and darkly comic, You’re Not Alone is an intimate glimpse into the mind of an eccentric genius.

What people have said about You’re Not Alone

★★★★ …extraordinary, unsettling, and very funny…
Jo Caird, What’s On Stage
★★★★ Fearless and tender.
Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard
★★★★ …one of the most hypnotically involving pieces of theatre I’ve ever seen.
Laura Barnett, The Telegraph
★★★★ …dark and often troubling
…a unique window on the bleak comedy of human existence.

Stephanie Merritt, The Guardian
An hour of HILARITY and PROFUNDITY and great power ballads
Jessie Thompson, Huffington Post
Warped and explicit, it is very much not for the faint-hearted. It is also one of the oddest, funniest, saddest hours of comedy I’ve seen.
Alice Jones, The Independent
Hilarious, unforgettable, even moving.
The Times
