In rehearsal: The Ugly One

Published 12 May 2017

A razor-sharp comedy about beauty, identity and doing what it takes to get to the top, Marius von Mayenberg’s The Ugly One centres on an engineer who is told he is too ugly to succeed – so he takes drastic action.

Despite his talent, Lette decides to undergo extreme plastic surgery to make himself more beautiful – but he soon discovers that there may be such a thing as being too good looking

And from the looks of photographer Helen Maybanks’ brilliant shots, the cast have been having just as much fun in rehearsals as audiences will at the Park Theatre.
