JEREMY Herrin’s revival of Duncan Macmillan’s People, Places & Things comes to Oxford Playhouse after a sell-out season in London.
The vivid portrayal of one woman’s entanglement in addiction, treatment and self-awareness introduces audiences to Emma.
She was having the time of her life, before it spun recklessly out of control through her dependency on drink and drugs. Now she’s in rehab.
Her first step is to admit 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 take the baton from Denise Gough as Emma.
Lisa’s credits include St Joan at the Lyric in Belfast, Liola at the National Theatre, and Loyal Women at the Royal Court. She has also had stints on The Fall and the BBC’s Waking The Dead.
Joining her is Michael Balogun who performed in Bookshop Theatre’s True West, Trevor Fox, Susan Lawson-Reynolds who was in To Kill A Mockingbird at Regents Park Open Air, Ekow Quartey, of As You Like It, at the National Theatre.
The cast also includes Andrew Sheridan, who was in Nuclear War, at the Royal Court, Imogen Slaughter, who performed in Twelfth Night, at the National Theatre, 2017 RADA graduate Aimee-Lou Wood and Matilda Ziegler, who appeared in For Services Rendered at Chichester Festival Theatre.
Described as the show everyone has been talking about, tickets cost from £15 and are available from the box office on 01865 305305 or go to oxfordplayhouse.com
It takes to the stage from Wednesday, October 11 to Saturday, October 14, following a critically acclaimed, sell-out season at the National Theatre and in London’s West End.
