The Ugly One

by Marius von Mayenburg
Directed by Daniel Aukin
Translated by Maja Zade

A co-production with Soho Rep. in association with John Adrian Selzer

You are ugly. It’s a fact. I can’t believe you didn’t know.

Lette is a talented engineer. But his boss won’t let him go to the conference to present his electrical plug. This whip smart social satire from one of Germany’s most exciting contemporary playwrights uses daring theatricality to explore a world where nothing can be taken at face value.



“Under the direction of Daniel Aukin, the cast lights into the roles with gusto.”

The New York Times

“A tight, light hour of scouring entertainment, smartly sculpted down to its very bones.”

New York Magazine
