“Drugs and alcohol have nerver let me down. They have always loved me. There are substances I can put into my bloodstream that make the world perfect. That is the only absolute truth in the universe. I’m being difficult because you want to take it away from me.”

Emma was having the time of her life. Now she’s in the 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?

Duncan Macmillan (born 1980) is a British playwright and director. In addition to plays, he has written several screenplays and radio dramas. His play People, Places and Things was nominated for Best New Play at the Olivier Awards.
