The title of this play is called Beauty by Jane Martin

The title of this play is called Beauty by Jane Martin,”Beauty” and was performed during the One-Act Play Festival on November 15, 2013 with Gerard Doyle as the theater director. Although I do not know any previous works by Gerard Doyle, this play was easy to understand. This play was a success because there seemed to be many members in the audience and at the end, the conflict is resolved. Martins Beauty really captures the jealousy between two friends who both have different but outstanding characteristics and with these, they are both successful women.
The two main characters, Carla and Bethany, are the opposite of one another. Carla is a beautiful but unsuccessful model with no brains and personality. On the other hand, Bethany is an accountant with high income and success in writing short stories but she is not satisfied with her appearance. Both girls want what the other have: Carla wants to be smart and Bethany wants to be beautiful.
The writer uses the genie to reveal Bethany’s desires to be beautiful and her discontent of her life. She sees beauty as a major importance in life “Beauty is a real deal” and she believes that it will bring her much good than she already has. However, Carla is the one who knows the disadvantages and problems of being beautiful and tries to tell Bethany not to wish for it. But of course, she does and she finally gets what she wants.
