  No Place 


No Place Productions is a grass-roots not-for-profit organisation dedicated to creating and delivering unique, gritty theatre performances and drama based programs which explore pertinent, social issues. Working within the community and custodial sector, engaging with disadvantaged people, No Place Productions use theatre to empower all sections of society to provoke real, positive, change. 
​ Founded by Actress-Producer Rachel Worsley, and Actor John Burns, NPP's leading directors and artists have worked together artistically for over 10 years, and collectively have over 40 years experience delivering theatre projects within these challenging settings.

The key to our audience's engagement is the realism of our approach and performances - a trade mark of No Place Productions. 

It is this unique delivery which provokes real reflection, discussion and genuine potential for positive change.

“I think whatever I say would be an understatement. The whole experience just blew me away. I felt the professionalism was first class. If anybody is considering working with No Place, I would say do it. You will regret it if you don’t.”

“This really hit home. Although prison tries on many levels to make offenders empathise with others and show compassion, nothing could really compare to the visual impact your work has. Thank you.”
