Following a critically-acclaimed, sold-out season at the National Theatre and in London’s West End, Duncan Macmillan’s People, Places & Things comes to Oxford Playhouse.

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 sober up?

Please note: special onstage seating is available for those who would like a uniquely intimate experience. Book here.

Duration: Approx 2 hours 20 minutes with interval

This is a piece of game-theatre and it’s entirely led by you, the audience. As well as just being yourselves – you are also, together, playing a character, and you’ll be asked to make choices for her. Fusing an interactive script with a live an...

  • Things I Know to be True

    Wed 27 - Sat 30 Sep

    Following a hugely successful 2016 tour, Things I Know To Be True returns to Oxford Playhouse this autumn. As beautifully touching as it is funny and bold, it tells the story of a family through the eyes of four grown siblings struggling to define themselves beyond their parents’ love and expectations. Parents Bob and Fran have worked their fingers to the bone and, with their four chil...

The works of a half-forgotten performance artist seem to hold the key to bringing down a brutal system operating on our behalf and under our noses. Do you join in? Or do you look the other way? From the maker of The Price of Everything and Going V...
