People, Places & Things

Theatre Royal Bath
People, Places & Things - Ekow Quartey as Foster and Lisa Dwyer Hogg as Emma - Photo credit Johan Persson


£19.50 - £35.50 with concessions available (Booking fee applies). For this production, in addition to auditorium seating, a limited number of on stage seats are on sale for every performance.


Following a critically acclaimed, sold out season at the National Theatre and in London’s West End, People, Places & Things is set to play the Theatre Royal Bath. Duncan Macmillan’s intoxicating play became the must-see West End show last year for its vivid portrayal of one woman’s entanglement in addiction, treatment and self-awareness. This thrilling new stage production receives its American premiere in New York during the same week as the UK tour visits Bath.

Duncan Macmillan is an award-winning playwright whose memorable adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984, delighted Bath audiences when it toured to the Theatre Royal in 2015. His raw and heartbreakingly truthful new play, People, Places & Things, focuses on Emma, an actress, whose life is spinning recklessly out of control.

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?

Lisa Dwyer Hogg (The Fall, Dunsinane) leads the cast directed by Jeremy Herrin, Artistic Director of celebrated theatre company Headlong, whose work includes the Royal Shakespeare Company’s multi award-winning world premiere of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall/Bring Up the Bodies, which also played both the West End and Broadway.
