"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?"
Denise Gough stars in the central role as Emma and will transfer with the production. She recently won the Critics' Circle Award for Best Actress - read our interview with her here.
