    Once upon a time in what feels like another country, three children play hide and seek. Fifteen year old Elliott wears a crown, thirteen year old Maggie wraps herself in silk and little Finn draws on the walls. Together they watch a mobile phone intensely, willing it to come to life. Whose call are they waiting for and why are they home alone?

    As hilarious as it is heartbreaking, Tusk Tusk, Polly Stenham’s second play, is a tale of family ties as an uncertain future circles.
