  • Ad Infinitum

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’d 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 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, this acerbically comic, thrilling and poignant show “brings tears to your eyes and raises your heart rate” (★★★★ The Guardian)
