Story

The third work in playwright Neil LaBute’s seriocomic look at America’s obsession with beauty (along with The Shape of Things and Fat Pig), Reasons to be Pretty follows what happens when Greg, a warehouse worker, makes an offhand remark about a new coworker’s good looks—and his own girlfriend’s lack thereof. When his accidental insensitivity makes it back to his girlfriend via two married pals from work, Greg’s average, middle-class American life begins to unwind. Meanwhile, the once steely relationships around him prove to be as unpredictable as his own, forcing everyone to reevaluate their perspectives, futures and the people they hold dear.
