Revival
New York Times Critic’s 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 focuses 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.
