News: Full Cast Announced For People, Places And Things

Today full casting was announced for the return of the original, smash hit production of People, Places and Things. Duncan Macmillan’s play, directed by the acclaimed, award-winning Jeremy Herrin and originally co-produced by the National Theatre and Headlong, will make a triumphant return to London’s West End, running at the Trafalgar Theatre from 3 May until 10 August 2024.

As previously announced, Denise Gough will reprise her Olivier Award-winning role as Emma, a struggling actress whose life is spinning recklessly out of control.  She is joined by Sinéad Cusack (V for Vendetta, Warner Bros; Rock ‘n’ Roll, Royal Court Theatre) who will play the roles of Doctor/Therapist/Mum, Malachi Kirby (Small Axe: Mangrove, BBC; upcoming Anansi Boys, Amazon Prime) who will play Mark, Danny Kirrane (The Sandman, Netflix; The Serpent Queen, Amazon Prime) who will play Foster and Kevin McMonagle (Scoop, Netflix; Best of Enemies, Young Vic) who will play the roles of Dad/Paul.

Holly Atkins (This Country, BBC; Sons of the Prophet, Hampstead Theatre), will play Charlotte, Paksie Vernon (Shetland, BBC; Angels in America: Part One, National Theatre) will play Jodi, Ryan Hutton (A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Royal Shakespeare Company; Only Fools and Horses, Theatre Royal Haymarket) will play Shaun, Ayọ̀ Owóyẹmi-Peters, will make her West End debut playing Laura and Dillon Scott-Lewis (Piglets, ITV; &Juliet, Shaftesbury Theatre) will play T.  Completing the company are Russell Anthony (Call the Midwife, BBC; Trouble in Butetown, Donmar Warehouse) and Louise Templeton (Jayson Bend: Queen and Country, Amazon Prime; Sherlock Holmes: The Final Curtain, Theatre Royal Bath).

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?

People, Places and Things garnered widespread critical acclaim when it had its world premiere at the National Theatre’s Dorfman theatre in September 2015 in a co-production with Headlong.  The production transferred to Wyndham’s Theatre in March 2016 in London’s West End before transferring to St. Ann’s Warehouse in New York in October 2017.

The creative team includes director, Jeremy Herrin; set designer, Bunny Christie; costume designer, Christina Cunningham; lighting designer, James Farncombe; music, Matthew Herbert; sound designer, Tom Gibbons; video designer, Andrzej Goulding; movement director, Polly Bennett; casting by Jessica Ronane CDG CSA; and original casting by Wendy Spon.
