A play by Polly Stenham
Directed by Hera Dunleavy
Where the wild things are now.
Maggie, 14, Eliot, 15, and Finn, 7, are home alone in an unfurnished flat awaiting a call on a cell phone that never rings. What are they waiting for and where the hell is Mum? Dancing a fine line between hilarity and heartache, Tusk, Tusk is the new offering from 26-year-old English sensation, Polly Stenham (That Face).
"Tusk, Tusk is often remarkably funny, as well as exceptionally touching." - Daily Telegraph
Featuring: Flynn Allan, Lucelia Everett-Brown, Arlo Gibson, Arlo McLean, Nilianne Ualiu, with guest appearances by Michelle Leuthart and Matthew Norton.
Design by: Jessika Verryt, Caitlin Brogan and Michael Forket.
