The Ugly One

Written by Marius von Mayenburg
Translated by Maja Zade

13 September – 13 October

GERMANY

Lette thought he was normal. When the extent of his ugliness is revealed he turns to a plastic surgeon for help. But after the bandages come off, Lette soon learns that there is such a thing as too beautiful.

The Ugly One is a scalpel sharp comedy on beauty, identity and getting ahead in life. Marius von Mayenburg's previous plays include Fireface, which premiered at the Royal Court in 2000, Parasites and The Cold Child. This is the British premiere of The Ugly One.

Reviews

"Extravagant ugliness that is transformed into a drop-dead gorgeous play...An exhilarating start to the Royal Courtıs International Season."

The Independent

*****

Time Out

"A delectable black comedy... I have not seen a more imaginative, inventive or disturbing theatrical vision."

Evening Standard

"...fiendishly clever, deeply unnerving and scalpel sharp."

Sunday Telegraph
