Buckland Theatre Company has announced casting for Marius von Mayenburg’s The Ugly One, the company’s third production at PARK90 at Park Theatre.
Staged ten years after it’s debut at the Royal Court Theatre, the acclaimed play will be directed by 2016 James Menzies-Kitchin Young Director Award winner Roy Alexander Weise and following his critically acclaimed production of The Mountaintop at Young Vic.
The Ugly One will star Charlie Dorfman as Lette, Arian Nik as Karlmann and Indra Ové as Fanny. For this ten year anniversary production, T’Nia Miller has been cast as Scheffler, a role which is traditionally played by a man.
The Ugly One is a razor-sharp comedy about beauty, identity and doing what it takes to get to the top. This biting social satire follows Lette, a talented engineer, who is told that his face is too ugly to succeed and so undergoes extreme plastic surgery to make himself more beautiful. But he soon discovers that, maybe, there is such a thing as being too good looking.
