"Disturbing, powerful and hypnotic, this is a shattering, gripping performance that searingly examines the human psyche."Lynne Lancaster, artsHub, about the adaptation in Sydney 2012
Face to Face is the story of Jenny, a psychiatrist with a comfortable life, and her own psychological breakdown. After an incident with a particularly difficult patient, and a subsequent traumatic encounter, Jenny realises that while she spends her life analysing other people’s minds, she is incapable of confronting her own demons. Descending into hallucinations and delirium, Jenny attempts to take her life, marking the beginning of an intense exploration of her own psyche.
Face to Face is a devastating psychological drama exploring madness, feeling, and the self.
