People, Places & Things
Tue 14 Nov to Sat 18 Nov 2017
£30 - £10
An intoxicating play about surviving in the modern world
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?
Written by Duncan Macmillan (1984, Every Brilliant Thing, Lungs) and directed by Headlong Artistic Director Jeremy Herrin (This House, The Nether, Wolf Hall/Bring Up the Bodies), People, Places & Things is designed by Olivier and Tony Award winning designer Bunny Christie (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.) This UK tour (with a new cast) follows a critically-acclaimed, sold-out season at the National Theatre and the West End.

“You pay closer attention to the breadth of the play and just how hardworking a company this is – juggling multiple physically demanding parts. Strong stuff.”
“Gains new resonances… People, Places & Things stands up to scrutiny with a new cast.”
“A startlingly good central performance by Lisa Dwyer Hogg… Rather brilliant… A genuinely remarkable show.”
