The Ugly One by Marius von Mayenburg

About The Play:
With a successful career and happily married, Lette thought he was normal. When his career is put on hold, his boss informs him of his complete and utter ugliness. Turning to plastic surgery for help, Lette awakens with an Adonis-like face turning his world inside out. After the bandages come off Lette begins to question…is there such a thing as being too beautiful? The Ugly One is a scalpel sharp comedy about beauty, identity and getting ahead.

Produced by Plan B Collective at The Jericho Arts Centre Feb. 22 – March 12, 2012

 Critical Response

This is a delightfully weirdly ominous show of quirky wit and stylish production values. With hardly any money the director Richard Wolfe and the designer Roxana Chapela make simple pieces seem high end. The sound design by Jordan Lloyd Watkins is startling and there is fine lighting by Jergus Oprsal. And then there is a great cast to lift this unique play.
