In Brisbane’s newest theatre venue, Allentertainment brings to the stage a One-Act play confronting what it means to be “beautiful”.
Lette is a successful engineer who is also unspeakably ugly. When a plastic surgeon restructures his face, he emerges from the operation an Adonis.
His life changes overnight: women lust after him and men want to be him. But his dream life soon becomes a nightmare when his surgeon begins to offer the same face to anyone who will pay.
‘The Ugly One’ is a dark comedy and social satire about identity and contemporary narcissism. A modern day allegory that asks the question – how far would you go to fit in?
The Ugly One is showing 1 July - 9th July
Venue: PIP Theatre 20 Park Road Milton
