First Look: The Ugly One, Buckland Theatre : Rehearsal images
Directed by 2016 James Menzies-Kitchin Young Director Award winner Roy Alexander Weise and following his critically acclaimed production of The Mountaintop at Young Vic, The Ugly One stars Charlie Dorfman as Lette, Arian Nik as Karlmann and Indra Ové as Fanny. For this ten year anniversary production, T’Nia Miller has been cast as Scheffler, a role which is traditionally played by a man.
The Ugly One is a razor-sharp comedy about beauty, identity and doing what it takes to get to the top. This biting social satire follows Lette, a talented engineer, who is told that his face is too ugly to succeed and so undergoes extreme plastic surgery to make himself more beautiful. But he soon discovers that, maybe, there is such a thing as being too good looking.
