Pretty Ugly Drama

Rehearsals are in full swing for our Youth Theatre’s performance of Pretty Ugly. The play, which has been developed and devised by the participants, tackles the issue of image and the pressures surrounding it – a topic that is very pertinent but not exclusive to young people.

Focusing on different characters, Pretty Ugly looks at what it means to be a young person struggling with their body image, the pressure to keep up the image they portray and what it’s like not to have an image, but to blend into the background unseen. The performance will be followed with a workshop looking at the issues raised.

We are very excited to be performing Pretty Ugly at The Grand Pavilion Porthcawl on Wednesday 27th October, at 7pm. Following this we will be touring youth settings, so if your organisation is interested in hosting Pretty Ugly then please get in touch! Call Melissa on 01656 729246 to find out more.
