What do you do when your mother acts like she's your age?
Polly Stenham wrote That Face at the tender age of 19, telling the story of an affluent family with a truckload of problems. Mia is at boarding school when she gets busted for drug use. Problem is, she got the drugs from her mum’s stash. Their mother Martha is controlling and suffering from alcoholism. Holding the pieces together is her son, Henry, but even he’s struggling to put a brave face on problems beyond repair. A compelling and darkly comic tale of a family under pressure. Unallocated seating. Running time approximately 2 hours.
"Explosive and gobsmacking."
