Review: ★★★★★ (Thoughts I had during) People, Places and Things, Wyndhams Theatre

  • Wow, this is high up, but I think we might be able to see anyway.
  • Okay, she doesn’t look that much like the girl from Orange Is The New Black in real life, just on the poster.
  • There is a bar in front of my face.
  • Plays are brilliant. I don’t know why it took me so long to get into plays.
  • Do I prefer plays to musicals?
  • Woah now Em, not so fast to make life changing decisions, please.
  • I wonder how much it costs to sit on the stage?
  • Maybe we should come back and sit on the stage.
  • Maybe I should try and wrangle some free tickets first, definitely still living on a student budget and all that.
  • I don’t know who wrote this but they were a clever, clever man.
  • Maybe it was a woman. Gosh. I should be ashamed of myself.
  • Why do I relate to so many things she says, she’s a drug addict.
  • At what point should I worry about this?
  • Denise Gough is literally something else. Who is she. How is she. How.
  • These are great monologues.
  • Hmmmmm this is probably the last scene of act 1 because I can see the front of house staff with their ice cream emerging.
  • I need to buy this play like, as soon as I leave the theatre, so that I can sit with it and read it and highlight it and just take in all of the wonderful words.
  • I will never have words as wonderful as playwrights.
  • Maybe I could try. Maybe I could write plays. Maybe I couldn’t. Maybe I’ll stick to the imminent nursing degree.
  • How on earth am I going to blog about this?
  • I wonder if the people who are on stage in order to depict several versions/headspaces of the same person can actually act, or if thy were cast solely on the grounds that they were the same height and body type?
  • I feel like I’m learning a lot about acting here.
  • She just articulated nostalgia better than I have ever heard anyone articulate anything. There are always going to be people, places and things which trigger memories or behaviours.
