Description

How many times can a woman be objectified before deciding she’s more human than that? More angry than that… more vengeful than that... And how on this patriarchal earth is she gonna make this bullsh*t fair? Em has had her womanhood threatened one too many times, and when her “boyfriend” breaks her heart, she becomes a woman the world fears, who lies, blackmails and gets what she wants. But when her past catches up with her present, we question: is this what she deserves? Brave Face is a pitch-black comedy about sex, trauma and the female experience.

With nudity, abuse, trauma and sexual violence and assault being the main focus of Brave Face, it is far from an easy watch, especially as Em moves from vulnerability and victimhood to avenger and abuser.
As a one-woman show, Brave Face keeps a strong momentum through its forty-two minute running time. It sometimes veers into the realms of the horrific but Brenner displays a clear understanding of the themes and the responsibilities around creating a show about them.
