Photo Flash: Rehearsal Images For People, Places And Things

The cast of the smash hit play People, Places and Things by Duncan Macmillan are currently in rehearsals ahead of their opening night at the Trafalgar Theatre on the 3rd May 2024. Today rehearsal images have been released taken by Marc Brenner.

The production is directed by the acclaimed, award-winning Jeremy Herrin. This production is co-produced by the National Theatre, Gavin Kalin Productions, Mark Gordon Pictures/Eilene Davidson Productions, Seaview and Second Half Productions. The show was originally co-produced by the National Theatre and Headlong.

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

Holly Atkins (This Country, BBC; Sons of the Prophet, Hampstead Theatre), is playing the role of Charlotte, Paksie Vernon (Shetland, BBC; Angels in America: Part One, National Theatre) is playing the role of Jodi, Ryan Hutton (A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Royal Shakespeare Company; Only Fools and Horses, Theatre Royal Haymarket) is playing the role of Shaun, Ayọ̀ Owóyẹmi-Peters is making her West End debut playing the role of Laura and Dillon Scott-Lewis (Piglets, ITV; &Juliet, Shaftesbury Theatre) is playing the role of 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.
