2015 saw the opening of Duncan Macmillan’s new play people, Places And Things at the Dorfman National Theatre, with audiences catching Denise Gough in the lead role of 30-something actress Emma. In 2016 this production becomes the latest in a long line of hit shows to make the transition from South Bank to the West End as it takes up performances at the Wyndham’s Theatre.
Following in the footsteps of other National theatre shows like The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse, People, Places And Things has big shoes to fill, but is sure to become a much talked-about production.
The story focuses on the mentioned character of Emma and we explore the world of substance addition through her eyes. She is an actress in her 30s and following a breakdown during her current performance in The Seagull she winds up in rehab where we witness her process and dismissal of the world it inhabits.
The play has been penned by Macmillan and is directed by Jeremy Herrin, best known as the Artistic Director of the Headlong Theatre Company (who produce this production with the National Theatre). He has been responsible for shows like The Nether at the Duke of York’s Theatre and This House at the National Theatre, amongst others.
For People, Places And Things he directs Denise Gough, herself boasting many credits in the capital. The performer has appeared in West End productions like Jesus Hopped The ‘A’ Train at the Trafalgar Studios, Six Characters In Search Of An Author at the Gielgud Theatre, Desire Under The Elms at the Lyric Hammersmith and Ahasverus for the Royal Shakespeare Company, whilst also making an impression with screen appearances for television and film. Audiences might recognise her from television films like The Duchess Of Malfi and series like Stella, What Remains, Silent Witness and Waking The Dead.
She next heads to the Wyndham’s Theatre in the spring of 2016 when People, Places And Things replaces shows like The Father with Kenneth Cranham and hangmen with David Morrissey.
People, Places And Things is at the Wyndham’s Theatre from Wednesday 23rd March 2016 (previews from Tuesday 15th March 2016).
