Denise Gough in People, Places and Things at the Wyndham's Theatre
Over the years some of the West End’s biggest success stories have come from the National Theatre, from One Man, Two Guvnors to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Another, in the form of War Horse, is set to close its doors in March 2016.
But fear not, as another National Theatre production is set to open in Theatreland that very month as People, Places And Things transfers from the Dorfman Theatre to the Wyndham’s Theatre in the West End.
The production deals with addiction through the character of Emma, an actress in her thirties who enters rehab to turn her life around.
She is played by Denise Gough in the show, an actress with an array of credits in the West End, as well as for other venues around the capital. She has also entertained audiences on the screen with performances in television shows like Stella, What Remains, Titanic: Blood And Steel, Waking the Dead and Silent Witness, amongst others. In terms of west end shows, her work includes Jesus Hopped The ‘A’ Train at the Trafalgar Studios, Six Characters In Search Of An Author at the Gielgud Theatre and As You Like It at the Wyndham’s Theatre, amongst others.
For People, Places and Things she works under the direction of Jeremy Herrin from a script by Duncan Macmillan, an acclaimed playwright who has had a lot of success with shows in the capital and beyond, particularly the popular production of 1984 that appeared at the Almeida Theatre and Playhouse Theatre in recent years. His other credits include Don Juan Comes Back From The War at the Finborough Theatre and others.
The production can currently be seen at the Dorfman National Theatre, where it continues until November.
People, Places And Things then runs at the West End theatre from Wednesday 23rd March 2016 (previews from Tuesday 15th March 2016) to Saturday 4th June 2016.
