That Face playwright Polly Stenham returns to the Royal Court with an anarchic twist on the drawing room drama. No Quarter asks what is the right way to live?
Fleeing a world he has rejected, Robin finds solace in his music and the sanctuary of his remote
family home. But as his kingdom begins to crumble around him, how far will he go to save it
and at what cost?
Stenham made a splash at the Royal Court with her first play, That Face, written when she was just 19. The familial drama won her the Critics’ Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright. She returned to the Sloane Square venue in 2009 with second play Tusk Tusk.
No Quarter reunites Stenham with regular collaborator Jeremy Harrin, whose shows in London’s West End include Absent Friends and Death And The Maiden.
