Lisa Dwyer Hogg has been cast as Emma in the upcoming revival of Duncan Macmillan’s People, Places and Things.

The Irish actor has previously been in Liola at the National Theatre and television series The Fall.

Directed by Jeremy Herrin, artistic director of Headlong, the play will tour the UK from September. It follows a woman attempting to recover from drug addiction.

It tours from September 22 to November 25, visiting venues including Home in Manchester, Oxford Playhouse and Bristol Old Vic. Press night is September 28.

The play premiered at the National Theatre in 2015, before transferring to London’s West End in 2016. Denise Gough won an Olivier Award for her performance as Emma in the West End production.

Gough will reprise the role in a production running simultaneously in New York at St Ann’s Warehouse.

Design is by Bunny Christie, costumes by Christina Cunningham, lighting by James Farncombe, music by Matthew Herbert, sound by Tom Gibbons and video by Andrzej Goulding.

It is a co-production between Headlong, The National Theatre, Home and Exeter Northcott Theatre.
