Event Description

For the first time in Western Canada, That Face by award winning playwright Polly Stenham opens at Langham Court Theatre Thursday, January 17 and runs until Saturday, February 2, 2013. Touching on critical issues such as substance abuse, dysfunctional family communication, abuse and bullying, this award winning contemporary play starring Kirsten Van Ritzen (Sin City-live improvised comedy show) as pill-popping alcoholic mother, Martha, under the direction of director Judy Treloar (of 4 star fame with her 2011 hit, Elizabeth Rex) as they construct the story of an affluent family in freefall; daughter Mia (Melissa Taylor) is suspended from boarding school for drugging another student, her drop-out brother Henry (Michael Bell) who spends his time taking care of Martha and absent father Hugh (Michael King) who has to return from Hong Kong to sort out what his money no longer can.

Stenham’s That Face is often compared to American dramatists such as Tennessee Williams and Edward Albee, Stenham herself acknowledges the “screaming allusions” to Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire and Albee’s Who’s afraid of Virgina Woolf (even admitting that Martha is named after the Martha from Virginia Woolf). Ever since That Face premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 2007, It has been making waves in London’s West End and New York, becoming the most successful play by a young playwright in recent history. Originally written when Stenham was only 19, That Face has gone on to win numerous awards including: Winner of the Evening Standard Award for Best New Play 2007, Winner of the Most Promising Playwright Award, Critics' Circle Awards 2008, Nominated for Best New Play, Olivier Awards 2009.

Be warned, That Face is not for “the faint-hearted, or anyone who believes all families are perfect! So, brave men, women and teenagers [only] !” - Director Judy Treloar
