Jeremy Herrin directs People, Places and Things

Jeremy Herrin directs People, Places and Things in a co-production with Headlong, which opens at the National Theatre on 1st September

 Written by Duncan Macmillan, People, Places and Things explores the effects of alcohol addiction in the modern world. The play follows Emma who was having the time of her life, but now she’s in rehab and her first task is to admit that she has a problem. The production follows Emma's journey from her own point of view in what Michael Billington from The Guardian says is "an astonishing performance much aided by Jeremy Herrin’s vivid Headlong production". 

 Jeremy is the current Artistic Director of Headlong Theatre and recently directed the touring production of David Hare’s The Absence of War and the West End transfer of The Nether. His critically acclaimed production of Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, adapted from Hilary Mantel’s novels, transferred to Broadway in 2015 and was Olivier and Tony nominated.

 People, Places and Things runs at the National Theatre until 4th November and tickets can be booked via the National website.
