Only 19 years of age when her explosive first play opened at London’s Royal Court in 2007, Polly Stenham was cited by The Daily Express as a modern successor to Tennessee Williams and Edward Albee. The Daily Telegraph said That Face is one of the most astonishing debuts in more than 30 years.

Featuring Redtwist company members, Jacqueline Grandt (the lead in Redtwist's current production of Bug) as well as guest artists, Rae Gray, Lindsay Leopold, Nick Vidal, Andrew J. Pond, and Page Weaver

That Face is a savage dissection of an affluent family in freefall, featuring a tangled mother-son relationship filled with helpless enabling, sick manipulation, and wicked desperation. A blistering, merciless drama with twisted humor in which the parents become children, and the teenage kids are left to steer a sinking ship. Buckle up, That Face is coming to the Midwest. And you can reach out and feel it at the same Jeff Award-winning theatre that produced 2011's Best Production, Man from Nebraska.
