The Ugly One
(Original Title: Der Häßliche)
by Marius von Mayenburg
Translated by Maja Zade
directed by Amy Rummenie

Lette is a great guy. But his wife and his boss think he's unspeakably ugly. (If only they had told him sooner!) Shocked to realize just how hideous he is, Lette goes to a plastic surgeon for a total facial overhaul. Suddenly everyone wants his face, literally. But whose face is it really? An absurd comedy of identity, appearance, and individuality.
