Drugged, blindfolded, tortured, a victim slips into unconsciousness. No, it’s not a prisoner of war. It’s a twelve year old at a London boarding school. Redtwist Theatrepresents the Chicago premiere of That Face. Mia teams up with Izzy to bully a young girl. When the hazing ritual gets brutally out-of-control, the girls are sent home. Mia’s mum is furious, but not about the school suspension. In fact, she doesn’t even remember talking to the school authorities. Martha is mad that Mia has interrupted her special time with Henry.

That Face shocks with heartless intensity and soulless humor. Read the rest of my review at Chicago Theater Beat.
