British playwright Polly Stenham was just 19 when she wrote "That Face," a drama depicting a family for whom the adjective "dysfunctional" is an understatement. Mother Martha is an alcoholic and pill addict who can't seem to get dressed most days. Father Hugh, a high-stakes broker, flew the coop long ago for Hong Kong and a second wife. Son Henry has dropped out of school to care for his boozy mum, with whom he has developed a borderline-incestuous relationship. Daughter Mia is close to expulsion from her upper-crust boarding school for giving an overdose of Valium—stolen from Martha's stash—to a schoolmate named Alice during an initiation gone horribly wrong. That's a lot for an author barely out of her teens to handle, but the British have eaten it up, showering Stenham with awards and nominations, including one for the Olivier Award for best new play, for the work's London production, which transferred from the Royal Court to a West End run.
