“You can be adored, or you can be a monster…”

Thing of Myth and Beauty is a show about queer love, sea monsters and justified, feminist rage told through ethereal, lyrical poetry and fiction. 

Alicia Fitton weaves together tales of heroines from Ancient Greece, teenagers from down the street, and girls from the office into a fierce and funny examination of what it means to be woman in public. This show will appeal to fans of Ancient Greece and the Pre-Raphaelite movement, witchy women, angry women and anyone who has sometimes thought about being a tree.
