People, Places and Things

Fresh from an acclaimed sold-out season at the National's Dorfman Theatre, this new production is currently playing at the Wyndham's Theatre for 14 weeks only.

Emma was having the time of her life. Now she’s in rehab.

Her first step is to admit that she has a problem. But the problem isn’t with Emma, it’s with everything else. She needs to tell the truth. But she’s smart enough to know that there’s no such thing. When intoxication feels like the only way to survive the modern world, how can she ever sober up?

People, Places and Things is the latest collaboration between Headlong and the National Theatre, following the acclaimed Earthquakes in London and The Effect.
