Be sure to check out the newly renovated Young Hall.Be sure to mark your calendar for these upcoming DramaCentre Productions (Weisiger Theatre):
CONVO: The Ugly One. Sept. 15 and 16 at 8 p.m., Sept. 17 at 6 p.m., Sept. 18 at 8 p.m. Described as a scintillating absurdist comedy about beauty, identity, and getting ahead in life, The Ugly One was written by Marius von Mayenburg, a German playwright and translator. His previous plays include Parasites, The Cold Child, and Fireface, which premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 2000. In the play, main character Lette thinks he is normal. When the extent of his ugliness is revealed he turns to a plastic surgeon for help. But after the bandages come off, Lette soon learns that there is such a thing as too beautiful. Mayenburg's 60-minute play squarely hits any number of targets: our society's obsession with external beauty, the brutality of capitalism, and the danger of treating defining organs like mechanical parts. The Ugly One is a scalpal-sharp comedy on beauty, identity and getting ahead in life. Directed by Rowen Haigh, Danville native and daughter of Centre drama professor Tony Haigh. Rowen is a professional director living and working in the Philadelphia theatre community.
