This fall, St. Ann’s Warehouse will partner with London’s National Theatre, Headlong, and Bryan Singer Productions for the American premiere of Duncan Macmillan’s People, Places & Things. Denise Gough will reprise her Olivier Award-winning performance in the Brooklyn production, directed by Jeremy Herrin.

Performances are scheduled to run October 19–November 19 as part of the Off-Broadway theatre’s 2017–18 season. St. Ann’s Warehouse will announce its complete 2017–18 season this spring.

During its limited run at the Wyndham’s Theatre on London’s West End, March–June 2016, People, Places & Things garnered critical acclaim, and Gough was awarded both the 2016 Olivier Award and the Critics’ Circle Award for Best Actress for her performance. In the new drama, she plays an actor whose life has spun recklessly out of control because of her addiction to alcohol and drugs.

“We are absolutely delighted to be collaborating with St. Ann’s to give New York audiences the opportunity to see Duncan Macmillan’s extraordinary play about addiction, and thrilled that Denise Gough, who originated the complex central character of Emma in London, will be reprising her powerful and visceral performance in Brooklyn,” commented Tim Levy, director of NT America, in a press statement.

Tickets for People, Places & Things will go on sale to members May 16 and to the public June 20.

St. Ann’s is currently staging the American premiere of Phyllida Loyd’s The Tempest, a co-production with the Donmar Warehouse.
The 2016-17 spring season will continue in March with the return of Kneehigh: the New York premiere of 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, adapted by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo and director Emma Rice (March 16–April 9).
