The Ugly One

The Ugly One at the Tron Theatre is a hilarious, fast-moving and scalpel-sharp comedy about external beauty, identity and the brutality of capitalism.

About The Ugly One

Lette thought he was normal. He’s the inventor of an incredible new electric plug but when his boss tells him he can’t go to a convention to announce his product to the world because he is unspeakably ugly and ‘can’t sell anything with that face’, his confidence is, understandably, rattled.

When even his wife concurs, Lette resorts to plastic surgery - ‘I wouldn’t know where to start’ confesses the doctor. But once the bandages are removed, Lette learns that there is such a thing as being too beautiful. Everyone wants a piece of him. And to look like him. As unforeseen hysteria unfolds, he is forced to confront some very ugly truths.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Ugly One are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
