The Ugly Duchess

THE UGLY DUCHESS

by Janet Munsil (Victoria)

WORLD PREMIERE

May 6 - 22, 2021
(Tentative dates to be confirmed) Studio Theatre inside Fringe Theatre Adventures

What does it mean to "rule with a man's heart?"

Margaret Maultasch, the last Countess of Tyrol and princess of Carinthia (born 1318 – died 1369), was reputedly the ugliest women in history. Her looks, and her terrified subjects, made her the perfect scapegoat for the ravages of the Black Deat, but her land holdings also made her an extremely desirable political bride. A fierce dispute over the events surrounding her divorce led to her being called Maultasch or "bag mouth" - meaning "whore" or "vicious woman". . But can you judge a book by its cover?

NLT is pleased to be producing the first professional production of THE UGLY DUCHESS. Originally written as a fringe show for a male actor, THE UGLY DUCHESS has played to sold out audiences and named "Best of the Fest" at Fringe Festivals across North America and beyond.
