The Ugly One – Tron Theatre
BAA’s Martin McCormick plays Lette in the Scottish premiere of The Ugly One, coming to the Tron Theatre in July.
Lette thought he was normal. He’s the inventor of an incredible new electric plug but when his boss tells him he can’t go to a convention to announce his product to the world because he is unspeakably ugly and ‘can’t sell anything with that face’, his confidence is, understandably, rattled.
When even his wife concurs, Lette resorts to plastic surgery – ‘I wouldn’t know where to start,’ confesses the doctor. But once the bandages are removed, Lette learns that there is such a thing as being too beautiful. Everyone wants a piece of him. And to look like him. As unforeseen hysteria unfolds, he is forced to confront some very ugly truths.
The Ugly One is a hilarious, fast-moving and scalpel-sharp comedy about external beauty and identity and the brutality of capitalism.

Following success in Australia and New York, Catherine Wheels are staging Pondlife for Scottish schools, with BAA’s Martin McCormick. A passionate one-man show that vividly illustrates the high stakes of classroom power play, Pondlife movingly explores the lasting legacy of childhood friendships.
Moving school is never easy. When class bully Sharon takes an instant dislike to Martin it feels like he has an especially tough ride ahead of him. That is until he befriends Simon McGurk and his fortunes seem to change. The fickle world of playground politics soon puts pressure on their friendship, however, and Martin finds himself making a choice that will impact them both for the rest of their school days.
