The National Theatre production of PEOPLE, PLACES & THINGS extends at the Wyndhams Theatre until 18 June 2016
The much anticipated production of Duncan Macmillan’s intoxicating new play, People, Places & Things, extends its run for two weeks due to popular demand, taking performances to 18 June 2016. Previews begin on 15 March 2016 at the Wyndham’s Theatre in the West End, with press night on Wednesday 23 March 2016.
Directed by Jeremy Herrin, People, Places & Things, a collaboration between the National Theatre and Headlong, played to sell-out houses at the NT’s Dorfman Theatre last year.
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.
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?
