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?
Following a sold-out season at the National Theatre and in London’s West End, Denise Gough reprises her Olivier award-winning role in the American Premiere of People, Places & Things at St. Ann’s Warehouse — a raw, heartbreaking and truthful performance about life spinning recklessly out of control.
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).
This American Premiere marks the first collaboration between St. Ann’s Warehouse and the National Theatre.
Run Time: Approx. 2 hours 20 mins with intermission
Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the show is described as follows: "Emma is an actress who is having the time of her life. Now all that has changed. 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?"
