Reasons to Be Pretty

March 6 - March 29

CAST presents the regional premiere of Neil LaBute’s latest comedy/drama REASONS TO BE PRETTY — a love story about the impossibility of love.

Do we ever really know what our partner thinks of us? REASONS TO BE PRETTY confronts America’s obsession with physical beauty headlong when Greg, a working-class guy in a long-term relationship, inadvertently remarks to a friend that, compared to a pretty coworker, his girlfriend is “regular.” This off-hand statement, a slip-of-the-tongue, begins a downward spiral as the characters begin to experience insecurities in their own lives. Is anyone ever totally comfortable in their own skin?

“Mr LaBute is writing some of the freshest and most illuminating dialogue to be heard anywhere these days.” – New York Times

“It is tight, tense and emotionally true, and it portrays characters who actually seem part of the world that the rest of us live in.” – Time
