If you see one piece of theatre this year then take advantage of having another chance to see the powerful ‘People, Places & Things’, now extended by a further two weeks due to public demand.
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). The piece is honest, dynamic, touching and fresh in it’s depiction of addiction and rehabilitation.
The play’s main character Emma played outstandingly by Denise Gough, 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 & Things’ is just brilliant for a young adult learning to navigate the modern world, or for a reminder of the need for compassion and understanding by an older generation.
Please note: People, Places and Things contains some strong language, strobe-like lighting effects and short complete lighting blackouts in the auditorium.
