Polly Stenham’s explosive That Face, written at the age of nineteen, was staged at the Royal Court before transferring to London’s West End. Tusk Tusk and No Quarter followed, also for the Royal Court. Her fourth play, Hotel, opened at the National Theatre. All four are contained in Plays 1, together with an introduction from the author.
‘One of the most astonishing debuts I have seen in more than 30 years.. In every respect this is a remarkable and unforgettable piece of theatre.’ Daily Telegraph
‘A cracking confirmation of Stenham’s talent… [A] gripping, witty, sad play.’ Financial Times
‘Stenham is that rare thing, a truly exciting writer… It is hard to envisage anything providing this kind of mainlining thrill.’ Evening Standard
‘At its core, Hotel is about civilisation peeled down to savagery. And that is where Stenham is at her brutal, universal best.’ Independent
