Following a critically-acclaimed, sold-out season at the National Theatre and in London’s West End, Duncan Macmillan’s People, Places & Things comes to Oxford Playhouse.

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 sober up?

Please note: special onstage seating is available for those who would like a uniquely intimate experience. Book here.
