STLCC-Florissant Valley Presents “Reasons to Be Pretty”
February 11, 2014
“Reasons to be Pretty,” written by Neil LaBute, takes the stage at St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley’s Terry M. Fischer Theatre at 8 p.m. Feb. 14, 15, 21 and 22 and 2 p.m. Feb. 16. The campus is located at 3400 Pershall Road in Ferguson.
In “Reasons to Be Pretty,” Greg’s tight-knit social circle is thrown into turmoil when his offhand remarks about a female coworker’s pretty face and his own girlfriend Steph’s lack thereof get back to Steph. But that’s just the beginning. Greg’s best buddy, Kent, and Kent’s wife, Carly, also enter into the picture, and the emotional equation becomes exponentially more complicated. As their relationships crumble, the four friends are forced to confront a sea of deceit, infidelity and betrayed trust in their journey to answer that oh-so-American question: How much is pretty worth?
The play is directed by Daniel Betzler.
Admission is free and all performances are open to the public; however, due to adult language, only patrons over the age of 16 will be welcome to this production.
