Polly Stenham’s play will run at the Richmond based theatre from the 9th September until the 7th October.

A new trailer has been released ahead of That Face beginning performances at the Orange Tree Theatre next month.

Josh Seymour directs this first major London revival of Polly Stenham’s debut play, which is set to star Niamh Cusack alongside Kasper Hilton-Hille, Dominic Mafham, Sarita Gabony and Bridgerton’s Ruby Stokes.

That Face won the Evening Standard Charles Wintour Award, the TMA Best New Play Award, and the Critics’ Circle Award. It is an exploration of what happens when children become parents to their parents.

When Mia is expelled from boarding school, her mother Martha isn’t interested. Martha prefers to hang out with her son Henry. And now her estranged husband Hugh, who’s run off to Hong Kong with his new girlfriend, is charging back threatening to sort things out. What is there to sort out? Everything is fine.

Artistic Director Tom Littler said: “We cannot wait to launch our autumn season with Polly Stenham’s remarkable first play. Niamh Cusack brings her unique talent to the role of Martha, and she is joined by two stage debutants in Ruby Stokes and Kasper Hilton-Hille, playing her children. Dominic Mafham and Sarita Gabony complete a very exciting cast. For those who saw the original production, this is a chance to re-encounter a contemporary classic; those who’ve never seen That Face are in for a treat.”

The creative team behind the production includes: Designer: Eleanor Bull; Lighting Designer: Jamie Platt; Sound Designer and Composer: George Dennis; Assistant Director: Chani Merrell and Fight and Intimacy Director: Ingrid Mackinnon.
