What if there was another take on the Trojan war, an untold, breath-taking adventure?

Enter Medusa.

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.

One of The Guardian's Best Theatre of 2022,Beautiful Evil Things is a high-energy one-woman show from Ad Infinitum, this high-energy tour de force combines physical storytelling and cut-throat wit.

The performance on Tuesday 4 June will be a BSL-integrated and captioned performance and is accessible to deaf, Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing audiences. The integrated BSL interpreter is Kyra Pollitt. A BSL interpreter will also be in the Front of House area before and after the performance to welcome and support BSL users.
