'A triumph – Denise Gough delivers an emotionally shattering performance.' Evening Standard
Fresh from an acclaimed sold-out season in the Dorfman Theatre, this new production will transfer to the Wyndham's Theatre for 14 weeks only from 15 March 2016. An intoxicating new play about surviving the modern world. Written by Duncan Macmillan (1984) and directed by Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall).
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?
A collaboration between Headlong and the National Theatre, following the acclaimed Earthquakes in London and The Effect.

Review: A Five Star Run At The Wyndham's Theatre For People, Places & Things
People, Places & Things is another successful west end transfer from the ever brilliant National Theatre. The play had a sell out run at the Dorfman Theatre in the South Bank complex and is now enjoying a five star run at the Wyndham’s Theatre.

White walls. Bright lights. Short sentences. When Does "Stylistic" Become Self-Indulgent?
“Stylistic” is a word used to describe, seemingly, most shows at the moment. But is it necessarily a good thing? I love seeing shows with a unique style but, sometimes, “stylistic” comes across as little more than self-indulgent. I mean, how many shows use the “unique” idea of invasive, bright lighting, and abstract perspectives?

Review: People, Places & Things At The Wyndham's Theatre
People, Places & Things, playing at the Wyndham's Theatre until the 4th June 2016, is a stylistic, flawlessly-performed production that exceeded my expectations. Whilst fairly intense, a well-balanced touch of humour stopped the show from being overbearing, creating an overall enjoyable piece of theatre.

In Praise Of... Unreserved Seating
I am aware some will look at this headline with confusion, maybe even repulsion but I can explain. Unreserved seating isn’t just about spoiling your pre-theatre bar time but about a fair ticketing system that allows friends to book separately and the over organised (or those with the sharpest elbows) to triumph. I look at the many pros, the occasional con that is unreserved seating.
