Marius von Mayenburg’s lightning fast satire is coming to the Small Batch Audience Series at CAOS ON F.

Lette is… unspeakably ugly. Which is probably why no one has told him before now. When the truth finally comes out he books it to the plastic surgeon’s. With the help of some electric knives and bone millers, Lette is suddenly the most beautiful man in the room. What comes next is an existensial comedy that questions the very basis of identity.


The Veils

A female Marine returns home from deployment in Afghanistan to begin planning her wedding. While being tormented by her controlling sister and mother, she fights against the ghosts she’s returned with from her experience overseas.

BWW Review: Nu Sass Presents Amusing Satire THE UGLY ONE

by Barbara Johnson Nov. 19, 2017

t's what's on the inside that counts. THE UGLY ONE by German playwright Marius von Mayenburg skewers that idea, and Nu Sass brings us an energetic take on the satirical play. Renana Fox directs actors who embrace their roles with effervescence, three out of four of them playing multiple characters, while colorful lighting by E-Hui Woo enhances the absurdist atmosphere...
