Beautiful Evil Things

A fierce, funny, bloody take on some of the oldest stories known to woman. From a killer Gorgon.

What if there was another take on the Trojan War, an untold breathtaking adventure you had never heard before? Enter Medusa. She was there. Monstrous gorgon? Snakes for hair? A turn-to-stone glare? Perhaps. But she was there - as a bodiless head strapped to the shield of a goddess. 

Her forever-open-eyes saw it all: Epic combat. Mighty swords. Giant horse sculptures filled with men. But as the war raged on, Medusa’s petrifying gaze focused on three extraordinary women who might just hold the key to her ultimate hope. 

Beautiful Evil Things is a new, high-energy, one-woman show from Ad Infinitum combining physical storytelling with cut-throat wit. Coming hot on the heels of their multi-award-winning hit, Odyssey, join Medusa on a thrilling adventure.

Please note
This production contains references to violence, sexual violence, and death. Contains a few subtle light flickers and some fast snap changes in lighting states but no strobe lights.
