TOPICAL PLAY ‘THAT FACE’ HEADS TO CITY

A multi-award winning play which originally featured Matt Smith from Doctor Who is being performed in Peterborough.

‘That Face’ by Polly Stenham, will be performed by second year BA (Hons) Performing Arts students at University Centre Peterborough.

You can see it at any of the three performances taking place at Peterborough Regional College on Tuesday December 11, Wednesday December 12 and Thursday December 13 from 7pm.

The play is about the downfall of a wealthy family, torn apart by addiction, obsession and abandonment.  Mia is at boarding school and she has access to drugs which belong to Martha. Henry is preparing for Art College and he has access to alcohol, also from Martha. Martha controls their lives and she is their mother.

“I did what I thought you should have done. Taken care of her. Taken very good care of her. Like she was broken. ‘Cept I thought I could fix her. Thought I’d do anything to fix her. Used to wish it on eyelashes.”

‘That Face’ originally featured Matt Smith (Doctor Who, The Crown) in his professional stage debut when Polly Stenham’s play premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London in April 2007. ‘That Face’ won the TMA Award 2007 for Best New Play and Polly Stenham received both the Charles Wintour Award 2007 and the Critics’ Circle Award 2008 for Most Promising Playwright.

Advance tickets are £5 each and available from gabe.manthorp@peterborough.ac.uk or you can pay on the door. Due to the content of the play it is suitable for 16+ years.
