'A triumph – Denise Gough delivers an emotionally shattering performance.' Evening Standard

Fresh from an acclaimed sold-out season in the Dorfman Theatre, this new production will transfer to the Wyndham's Theatre for 14 weeks only from 15 March 2016. An intoxicating new play about surviving the modern world. Written by Duncan Macmillan (1984) and directed by Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall).

Denise Gough will recreate her ‘career defining performance’ as Emma, an actress whose life has spun recklessly out of control because of her addiction to drink and drugs.

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, the highly acclaimed production of Duncan Macmillan’s intoxicating new play will transfer to the West End’s Wyndham’s Theatre from 15 March 2016.

The set is designed by Bunny Christie, who won Olivier and Tony Awards for the National Theatre’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.  Costumes are by Christina Cunningham, lighting by James Farncombe and sound by Tom Gibbons. 

Alongside Denise Gough in the central role are Jacob James Beswick, Alastair Cope, Jacqui Dubois, Barbara Marten, Nathaniel Martello-White and Kevin McMonagle.
