Beautiful Evil ThingsWork-in-Progress | The Theatre on The Downs
One woman unearths the epic stories of powerful Greek legends, buried in myth for far too long.
In a relay race of physical storytelling, four characters pass through the Trojan War, escape its cruel aftermath, and enact bloody revenge in its fallout. Tearing up the legends as we know them, this passionate, breathtaking adventure churns up stories hidden for thousands of years.
Following their multi award-winning hit show, Odyssey, Ad Infinitum returns to the world of Greek myth, to celebrate the timeless women Medusa, Clytemnestra, Cassandra and Penthesilea.
A chance to see a preview of Ad Infinitum’s latest work-in-progress supported by The Wardrobe Ensemble and Tobacco Factory Theatres.
