Reasons to Be Pretty ()

Playwright: Neil LaBute


The Commons Theatre


August 24th, 2018 – August 26th, 2018


Greg said it to Kent. Carly overheard. Carly told Steph.

‍None of their relationships will ever be the same.

‍Reasons to Be Pretty examines two couples at crossroads in their relationships, as they grapple with societal expectations of beauty, their notions of self-worth, and the ramifications of toxic masculinity.

A play about identity and appearance, this quick-witted, volatile drama explores not only how others see us, but how we see ourselves. (
