You are ugly. It’s a fact. I can’t believe you didn’t know.
Lette is a talented engineer. But his boss won’t let him go to the conference to present his electrical plug.
This whip smart social satire from one of Germany’s most exciting contemporary playwrights uses daring theatricality to explore a world where nothing can be taken at face value. Former Artistic Director Daniel Aukin (4000 MILES) returns to Soho Rep and The Play Company to direct.
