The importance of beauty never seems to fade away but is it possible to become too beautiful? How much does your image shape your identity, and who are you really behind the veil of your physical self? For years, Lette has been blissfully unaware of his unusual appearance, but when the extent of his ugliness is pointed out, Lette feels he has no other option but to go under the knife. The Ugly One is a savage social satire which unravels in an absurd world where everyone begins to look the same.
Hailing from Germany, damaturg and playwright Marius Von Mayenburg’s work has been translated in over 30 languages.
Discrimination based on notions of ‘beauty’, cosmetic alteration, power.
