The Ugly One
A Razor Sharp Black Comedy
By Marius von Mayenburg, Translated by Maja Zade
Produced in Association with Theatre Smash and Tarragon Theatre
Show Advisory: Sexy & Provocative Content
With mesmerizing speed, Theatre Smash’s award-winning production by one of Germany’s hottest playwrights catapults us into a narcissistic world obsessed with beauty, image and plastic surgery.
Lette is a successful engineer who is also unspeakably ugly. When a plastic surgeon restructures his face, he emerges from the operation an Adonis. His life changes overnight: women lust after him and men want to be him. But his dream life soon becomes a nightmare when his surgeon begins to offer the same face to anyone who will pay.
