Reasons To Be Pretty
A Caustic Comedy by Neil LeBute
Though sticks and stones can break your bones, Neil LaBute knows that words hurt! In this edgy, contemporary comedy, Greg makes the mistake of calling a female coworker "hot", while describing his girlfriend as "regular".This overheard comparison throws his life into turmoil. Relationships at home and at work crumble, and four friends are forced to question their self-worth amid deceit, insecurity and betrayal. Author of The Shape of Things and Fat Pig, LaBute is a powerful and poignant voice in the theatre confronting America's unhealthy obsession with physical beauty.
