BRAVE FACE is by far the bravest and most powerful production I have seen at the Fringe this year.

★★★★★ Broadway Baby

How many times can a woman be objectified before she decides she is more human than that? More angry than that…  more vengeful than that… and how on this patriarchal earth is she gonna make it all this bullsh*t fair? Give the girl a lifetime supply of novocaine and you can goddamn bet her heart will numb. Give the girl a knife and she’ll cut a dick. Give the girl a gun and get out of the way. 


Brave Face is a play that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime. It is powerful, hilarious and heartbreaking, all in its 50-minute runtime. Everleigh Brenner deserves a lot of recognition for her remarkable script and her phenomenal acting. It is a night that leaves the audience educated, laughing and on the verge of tears. Don’t miss out on this wonder of a play. 

★★★★★ West End Best Friend

We see one woman, yet it’s the weight of an entire culture on her shoulders, keeping emotions high and every nuanced detail in check through its inviting visuals. Brenner is quite right—her metaphorical dick is indeed huge. With it, she’s created an authentically special experience, leaving us with new knowledge and a best friend.

★★★★★ The Indiependent

Well charged dialogue, dancing, enacting play with ever so careful plots to make sure we didn’t leave without an assured sense that someone cares and loves us, especially of this common circumstance. Well worth a visit out side he fringe as well, congrats, what a Brave Face, indeed.

★★★★★ Mumble Theatre

Hoo Hah House’s production Brave Face is by far the bravest and powerful production I have seen at the Fringe this year. With nudity and violent themes from the start it is an adrenaline fuelled hard hitting black comedy straight from the offset.
