New York Times Critic Pick!  Boasting critically acclaimed, sold-out runs in both London and New York, People, Places & Things is an exhilarating new play about surviving in the modern world.  The story focusses on Emma, a thirty-something actress who thinks she is having the time of her life, until she finds herself in rehab.  Her first step is to admit that she has a problem.  But the problem isn’t with Emma; it’s with everyone else.  And when intoxication feels like the only way to survive, how can she ever sober up?  From award-winning playwright Duncan Macmillan (1984, Lungs, Every Brilliant Thing), comes this mesmerizing trip into addiction, rehab, and identity.

RUN TIME: People, Places & Things plays in approximately two hours and thirty minutes with one intermission.

CONTENT ADVISORY: This production contains depictions of addiction and self-harm, discussions of sexual assault, an extended strobe light sequence, herbal cigarette smoke, and loud noises.
