AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE – REASONS TO BE PRETTY
Boy Meets Girl
Boy Dates Girl
Boy Compares Girl with Other Girl…
Greg and Stephanie have been together for a while when Greg says something pretty dumb to Stephanie that pushes her to the very edge. Their familiar struggles of wanting to be loved, wanting to feel attractive and wanting to understand each other are at the bedrock of this searing comedy.
Reasons to Be Pretty gets stuck into timeless arguments between women and men in LaBute's trademark frank, honest and arresting style. It is the third play in a thematic trilogy concerned with society’s obsession with looks, following LaBute’s The Shape of Things and Fat Pig.
Anyone who's ever written a letter to an ex, felt ugly, or generally wanted lover's revenge will be delighted by Reasons to be Pretty, LaBute's first play to transfer to Broadway (nominated for three Tony Awards).
