Reasons to Be Pretty

When: Sundays, 3 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through April 10 2016

You can call a woman many things, but just don’t call her regular. In this final installment of Neil Labute’s trilogy of plays exploring obsession with physical appearance, the dead-end lives of four working-class friends unravel around a lover’s passing remark about his girlfriend’s face. In typical Labute fashion, language lies at the crux of this coming-of-age play. Expect plenty of F-bombs and variations on other four-letter insults in this piece that celebrates “the uncommonness in common speech.” David Rinear directs The Playhouse’s production.

Price: $12-$30
