Description A hard-hitting, intense and visceral dissection of those who become parents to their parents. At the heart of That Face is the mother, Martha, a woman with obvious connections to the monstrous capabilities of her namesake in Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, as well as the fragile delusions of Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire. Deserted by her husband, Martha's various needs are sated by pills and booze, and especially her teenage son Henry, who has dropped out of school to look after his mother, only to be drawn inexorably into her narcotised fantasy land.
