EXTENDED THROUGH DEC 3!


Denise Gough is SPECTACULAR…
Thrilling, devastating…Endlessly inventive”
The New York Times, Critics’ Pick


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.

Run Time: Approx. 2 hours 20 mins with intermission
Recommended age 14+
