People, Places & Things
"Directed by Tracie Pang and grippingly held together by the hurricane-like Sharda Harrison [in] a role [she] carries off imperiously... This play's power lies in forcing audiences to experience the serpent coil of addiction."
– The Straits Times
Meet Emma – professional actor, consummate performer, chameleon-like make-believer.
Meet Emma – pathological pretender, compulsive liar, hopeless addict.
Committed to rehab, she desperately clings on to her alter egos and imagined personas, as her world spirals into a surreal abyss. Friends, family members and fellow addicts morph into figments of fantasy, her sense of self fragments, and she is forced to ask: which version of me is the real me?
Together with Emma, we embark on a thrilling, trippy journey. And as we see, hear, and feel everything from her perspective, our own reality begins to fracture, and we find ourselves asking: which version of this story is the truth?
Duncan Macmillan’s brilliant People, Places & Things is a devastating exploration of a person’s desperate need to escape real life, a riveting examination of the parallels between theatre and therapy, between art and addiction, and unlike any theatrical adventure you will have experienced before.
