It’s a different world with different rules…
Niamh Cusack leads a revival of Polly Stenham’s astounding 2007 debut.
When Mia is expelled from boarding school, her mother Martha isn’t interested. Martha prefers to hang out with her son Henry. And now her estranged husband Hugh, who’s run off to Hong Kong with his new girlfriend, is charging back threatening to sort things out. What is there to sort out? Everything is fine.
Polly Stenham’s blazing debut play exposes the secret lives of the rich with anarchic humour. That Face won the Evening Standard Charles Wintour Award, the TMA Best New Play Award, and the Critics’ Circle Award. This is its first major London revival.
Niamh Cusack plays Martha. Cusack’s illustrious career includes The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time(National Theatre / West End) and My Brilliant Friend (Rose Theatre Kingston / National Theatre).
