Following a sold-out season at the National Theatre and in London’s West End, Denise Gough reprises her Olivier award-winning role in the American Premiere of People, Places & Things at St. Ann’s Warehouse from October 19 to November 19, 2017, in DUMBO.
A raw, heartbreaking and truthful performance about life spinning recklessly out of control. 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?
This American Premiere marks the first collaboration between St. Ann’s Warehouse and the National Theatre.
“We are absolutely delighted to be collaborating with St. Ann’s to give New York audiences the opportunity to see Duncan Macmillan’s extraordinary play about addiction, and thrilled that Denise Gough, who originated the complex central character of Emma in London, will be reprising her powerful and visceral performance in Brooklyn,” commented Tim Levy, director of NT America, in a press statement.
