    Synopsis: 

    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?

    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 — a raw, heartbreaking and truthful performance about life spinning recklessly out of control.

    This American Premiere marks the first collaboration between St. Ann’s Warehouse and the National Theatre.

    The Horror Show of Rehab in ‘People, Places & Things’

    October 25, 2017:

    Who is responsible for Emma’s addiction?

    You can see from a mile away she’s an addict. Upon arrival in rehab, she snorts a line of cocaine off the reception desk and then makes a list for the intake doctor of other things she’s abused during the previous 24 hours: weed, speed, beta-blockers, gin, ibuprofen, Valium, Ativan, “benzos” and, oh yes, “quite an expensive” Rioja.

    She might have added Chekhov, for Emma is an actor who gets high just performing. (We first meet her staggering through the last act of “The Seagull.”) “Acting gives me the same thing I get from drugs and alcohol,” she says mordantly. “Good parts are just harder to come by.”
