AN INTOXICATING NEW PLAY ABOUT SURVIVING IN THE MODERN WORLD

Following a critically-acclaimed, sold-out season at the National Theatre and in London's West End, People, Places & Things transfers to St. Ann's Warehouse from October 19, 2017.

Olivier award-winning ®Best Actress¯ Denise Gough reprises her role as Emma in a career-defining performance. People, Places & Things is a collaboration between Headlong and the National Theatre, written by Duncan Macmillan (1984, Every Brilliant Thing, Lungs) and directed by Jeremy Herrin (The Nether, Wolf Hall/Bring Up the Bodies), with set design by Olivier and Tony award-winning designer Bunny Christie (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.)

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?

WINNER!
