The Ugly One by Marius von Mayenburg, is a scalpel sharp comedy on beauty, identity and getting ahead in life.

The Ugly One had its British premiere at The Royal Court Theatre, London in 2007 and has been well received by audiences and critics around the world ever since.

Using a precisely paired-down form four actors play eight roles with no traditional scene breaks, the play tells the story of Lette, a successful engineer who is also unspeakably ugly. When a plastic surgeon restructures his face, Lette emerges from the operation an Adonis. His life changes overnight: women lust after him and men want to be him. But this dream life soon becomes a nightmare, as Lette’s surgeon begins to offer his face to anyone who will pay.
