Play 3:

Reasons to be PrettyLooks may not be everything, but in this gritty comedy from acclaimed playwright Neil LaBute, they’re enough to turn the world of four young adults upside down.

When word gets back to Steph, Greg’s girlfriend, that he described her face as “regular” — not beautiful, not pretty, just . . . regular — the emotional fallout spreads to their friends, who have secrets of their own to keep. What follows is a funny, biting play in which appearances aren’t just deceiving — they’re downright dangerous. “LaBute takes the old saw that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and gives it new teeth.” – Time Out.
