The Ugly One
by Marius von Mayenburg
directed by Ashlie Corcoran
January 08, 2014 – February 16, 2014
“You can’t sell anything with that face.” A razor sharp satire about getting ahead in the world. With mesmerizing speed, this award-winning production by one of Germany’s hottest playwrights catapults us into a narcissistic world obsessed with beauty, image and plastic surgery.
The Ugly One was nominated for six Doras and won two, including Outstanding Production. The original Theatre Smash creative team and cast — Jesse Aaron Dwyre, David Jansen, Hardee T. Lineham and Naomi Wright — reassemble for this powerful work by Marius von Mayenburg, one of the most widely produced playwrights in Germany.
