The Girl With the Ugly Face is based on conversations and workshops with children about the feelings of anger, loneliness and guilt. It is a show about how language shapes us, and about being a child, and fitting in (or not!), no matter where you are or what language you speak. It is also about friendship, and how it is possible to make things good again when everything feels bad. Lisa gets angry very fast. And when she gets angry, she gets very angry. She has never beaten anyone or thrown stones at anyone. But she says bad things. One day, she get so angry and says so many bad things, that everyone at the school scream: "Buuuh - you have an ugly face!“ Lisa runs home thinking that no one understands her. Not the other kids, not the teachers, nor the parents… The production was supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
