Combining West African folklore and contemporary American culture, If Pretty Hurts Ugly Must be a Muhfucka follows four teenage girls as they grapple with societal definitions of beauty. In the fictional setting of Affreakah-Amirrorkah, the four young women - Kaya, Massassi, Adama and Akim - are given an opportunity to live in a society where their individual beauty can reign supreme. But this opportunity comes at a dangerous cost.

Tori Sampson's hilariously provocative play doesn't ask the question "How much is beauty worth?" but rather, "Why are so many willing to pay its price?"
