Reasons To Be Pretty, written by Neil LaBute and directed by Theatre student, Cody Robison
February 13 - 15, 2015
Friday, February 13 @ 7:30pm
Saturday, February 14 @ 2:00pm & 7:30pm
Sunday, February 15 @ 2:00pm
All tickets are general admission, $6.00, and $7.00 on the day of the performance.
Reasons to be Pretty focuses on the human tendency to be all to consumed by physical appearance. The events that follow in the play begin from a subtle remark of being "regular" and in a downward spiral of events comedic and serious, the couples' relationships find themselves at the breaking point. LaBute creates a very relate-able story within this work, and shows just how shallow people can be without even realizing it.
