The Ugly Show

Every day until Sun 17 Nov 2019
The Ugly Show is a celebration of the anti-aesthetic. No make-up. No sequins. The un-instagrammable show that finds beauty in the uglies.

Tackling the big issues – gender and bodies, with absolutely no style.

This is a devised show that humorously explores the disparity between the bodies we see on stage and the bodies we live in. Part theatre, part sketch comedy, part performance art, entirely NOT PRETTY.

Directed by award-winning comedian Maddie Houlbrook-Walk, and devised by a diverse all-female team, The Ugly Show brings a fresh perspective to the way bodies are perceived and experienced. It aims to reclaim the language typically used to vilify and oppress those who do not meet contemporary beauty standards. The production’s success and ethos lies in the power of visibility; the importance of representation of diverse bodies on screen and stage, and the ability to take joy in the unglamorous aspects of ourselves.

The Ugly Show promises to deliver a thoughtful message with humour and gracelessness.
