THAT FACE, the debut play from award-winning playwright Polly Stenham, will have its first London revival at the Landor Theatre from Tuesday 12 November to Sunday 1 December.

That Face (Winner of the Evening Standard Best New Play Award) is a compelling portrayal of an affluent family in freefall. Mia is at boarding school. She has access to drugs. They are Martha’s. Henry is preparing for art college. He has access to alcohol. From Martha. Martha controls their lives. Martha is their mother. This is a family at breaking point. Mia and Henry have long been dealing with their mother's addictions, but after a prank goes wrong at Mia's boarding school, their situation goes from comically bad to utterly ridiculous. When their estranged father arrives to sort things out, they must face the reality that their well-to-do family may have combusted beyond repair. That Face is a hard-hitting, intense and darkly comic exploration of children who become parents to their parents.

The cast features Caroline Wildi as Martha, Rory Fleck Byrne as Henry, Tony Donnelly as Hugh, Stephanie Hyam as Mia, Georgina Leonidas as Izzy and Imogen Byron as Alice. It is directed by Tara Robinson (currently Associate Director to Michael Grandage), with set and costume design by Rachel Stone and lighting design by Derek Anderson. It is produced by David Adkin.
