People, Places and Things


This show has now closed.

Fresh from an acclaimed sold-out season in the Dorfman Theatre, this new production will transfer to the Wyndham's Theatre for 12 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).

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?

People, Places and Thingsis the latest collaboration between Headlong and the National, following the acclaimed Earthquakes in London and The Effect.
