That Face

Written by Polly Stenham
Directed by Scott James

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.
