9780822223948: reasons to be pretty - Acting Edition

Greg is overheard admitting that his girlfriend Steph is no beauty, but that he wouldn't change her for the world. She is devastated; he can't see what he's done wrong. Meanwhile, Greg's friend Kent alternates between boasting about how gorgeous his wife Carly is and chasing after a hot new colleague. The final part of Neil LaBute's 'beauty trilogy' (following "The Shape of Things" and "Fat Pig") about society's obsession with looks, "Reasons to Be Pretty" premiered in the UK at the Almeida Theatre, London, in November 2011. "["The Shape of Things"] is LaBute's thesis on extreme feminine wiles, as well as a disquisition on how far an artist can go in the name of art ...Like a chiropractor for the soul, LaBute is looking for realignment, listening for the crack." ("Elle"). "A heart-warming tale from America's master misanthrope." ("Independent" on "Fat Pig").
