Previews begin at the Wyndham’s Theatre on Tuesday 15 March, with opening night on Wednesday 23 March, and having recently extended its run, People, Places and Things is booking until 18 June 2016.

Denise Gough, who plays Emma, won the Best Actress Award at the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards 2015 and was nominated for the Best Actress Award by the Evening Standard for her ‘career defining performance’ as an actress whose life has spun recklessly out of control because of her addiction to drink and drugs. People Places and Things has also been nominated for four 2016 Olivier Awards including Best New Play and Best Actress for Denise Gough.
The cast also includes: Jacob James Beswick, Nari Blair-Mangat, Alistair Cope, Jacqui Dubois, Charlotte Gascoyne, Sally George, Kevin McMonagle, Nathaniel Martello-White, Barbara Marten, David Rubin and Laura Woodward.
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?
The set is designed by Bunny Christie, the Olivier and Tony Award winner of the National Theatre’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. She will recreate her innovative set design at the Wyndham’s Theatre with special on-stage seating bringing the intimacy of the Dorfman Theatre to the West End. Costumes are by Christina Cunningham, lighting by James Farncombe, sound by Tom Gibbons, video by Andrzej Goulding and music is composed by Matthew Herbert.
