‘You can’t improve on perfection. Some of the finest work on any London stage.’

Duncan Macmillan’s (Lungs, 1984) intoxicating hit play PEOPLE, PLACES & THINGS, directed by Jeremy Herrin (Best of Enemies, Wolf Hall, This House) and designed by Tony Award-winner Bunny Christie, is a ‘must-see all over again’ (WhatsOnStage). Now playing at the Trafalgar Theatre until 10 August only.

Denise Gough reprises her Olivier Award-winning role as Emma, a struggling actress whose life is spinning recklessly out of control. Gough’s ‘blisteringly funny, brilliantly physical and achingly human’ (Financial Times) performance is once again thrilling audiences in PEOPLE, PLACES & THINGS – hailed by critics as ‘one of the greatest of her generation’ (Independent).

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?

Don’t miss this ‘unforgettable night’ (The Times) in the West End.
