Beautiful Evil Things image

Multi award-winning Ad Infinitum (Odyssey, Translunar Paradise, Ballad of the Burning Star) returns with a breathtaking retelling of the Trojan War. Enter Medusa. Monstrous gorgon? Snakes for hair? A turn-to-stone glare? Perhaps. She was there – head strapped to the shield of a goddess. Her forever-open eyes saw it all, but Medusa’s petrifying gaze focused on three extraordinary women, the key to her ultimate hope. Beautiful Evil Things is a new, high-energy, one-woman tour de force combining physical storytelling with cut-throat wit. One of The Guardian’s Best Theatre of 2022. **** (Guardian). **** (Stage). **** (Morning Star).
