The Fugly Truth
Three is better than one, at least when it comes to artsy theatre gals. The Janes is a new Calgary-based performance creation company and their play “Fugly” playing May 30 to June 2 cuts right to our vain hearts.
“Fugly” pokes at the ugly truth of our neuroses including perspectives on beauty vanity, sexuality and gender. Fugly is a folk-legend-fairy-tale-comedy-type play about a heroine who loses her mind and has to rebuild her identity, which is tricky for someone who lived her life trying to be something else.
Mirror, mirror on the stage you make us laugh while we cringe at our own wackiness. —Jaelyn Molyneux
