"Reasons to Be Pretty" by Neil LaBute, directed by Garry Thomas.

"A quirky, fast-paced, prickly comedy.”

A love story about the impossibility of love, reasons to be pretty introduces us to Greg, who really, truly adores his girlfriend, Steph. Unfortunately, he also thinks she has a few physical imperfections - “Maybe Steph’s face is just regular, but I wouldn’t trade it for a million bucks”.

Centering on four working class friends and lovers who become increasingly dissatisfied with their dead-end lives and each other, reasons to be pretty opens during the final moments of Greg and Steph's tumultuous four-year relationship with what is probably the most intense, expletive-driven, flesh-searing argument seen on stage.

A random, unintentional comment about Steph’s attractiveness sets her on a tirade of four-letter words. Greg, chronically suffering from foot-in-the-mouth disease, only enrages Steph further with his nonanswers and rationalizations.

Presented by: A Little Box At The Top Of The Stairs
