The National Theatre and Headlong present
PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS
by Duncan Macmillan
West End transfer: Wyndham's Theatre from March 15, 2016 through June 18, 2016
An intoxicating new play about surviving the modern world. Written by Duncan Macmillan (1984) and directed by Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall).
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?
A collaboration between Headlong and the National Theatre, following the acclaimed Earthquakes in London and The Effect.
Please note: People, Places and Things contains some strong language, strobe-like lighting effects and short complete lighting blackouts in the auditorium.
