People, Places and Things, National Theatre

Johan Persson
The latest collaboration between Headlong and the National, following the acclaimed Earthquakes in London and The Effect.
The new play from 1984’s Duncan Macmillan follows Emma, who was having the time of her life until she was admitted to rehab. The play tells the story of Emma, a girl who was doing everything humanly possible to enjoy the time of her life. Having taken things that little bit too far, Emma finds herself in the last place that she was expecting: rehab. Although she is encouraged to be honest about her problems, Emma is sure that the issues lie with everything and everyone else. Forced to examine her place in the modern world, Emma is astute enough to realise that there is no such thing as an absolute truth.
