Following their multi award-winning show Odyssey (Winner of The Stage Award), Ad Infinitum return to the universe of Greek myth with a bold new one-woman production unearthing women’s voices from the ancient world that were lost, distorted or erased by history and putting them centre stage in a truly transformative theatre experience.

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 for a thrilling adventure.
