Face It - Leonie

Straight-talking Leonie is confident her acquired visual difference won’t stand in her way. So why does her treatment when she wears a mask move Leonie to tears?

Straight-talking Leonie (Crystal Marshall) is confident her acquired visual difference won’t stand in her way.

She has dealt with her demons and fiercely knows that her changed face doesn’t matter. With genuine delight, she gives a rundown of the most entertaining well-intentioned comments she has heard – just in at No. 3 is ‘I Can See You Used to be Pretty’ by Man in Pub.

So why does the way she’s treated when she wears a mask keep moving Leonie to tears? What will happen when Covid masks are finally binned? And can she dig deep and face up to a blast from her past?

Face It's comedy-drama monologues reveal how two women feel about their faces in the modern swipe-right world, and the unexpected impact of wearing Covid-19 face masks.
