Jeremy Herrin’s much anticipated UK revival of Duncan Macmillan’s highly acclaimed People, Places and Things opens in Manchester later next month ahead of a national tour.
Joining Lisa Dwyer Hogg as Emma are Michael Balogun (Shaun), Trevor Fox (Paul & Dad), Susan Lawson-Reynolds (Jodi), Ekow Quartey (Foster), Andrew Sheridan (Mark), Imogen Slaughter (Meredith), Aimee-Lou Wood (Laura) and Matilda Ziegler (Doctor & Mum).
Following a critically-acclaimed, sold-out season at the National Theatre and in London’s West End, People, Places and Things will embark on a major UK tour for Headlong in a co-production with the National Theatre, HOME and Exeter Northcott Theatre.
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?
Irish born Lisa Dwyer Hogg will play Emma, an actress whose life has spun recklessly out of control because of her addictions to drink and drugs.
Duncan Macmillan’s intoxicating play People, Places and Things became the must-see show in 2016 for its vivid portrayal of one woman’s entanglement in addiction, treatment and self-awareness.
