Rage Against The Machine, athleticism, beauty and Bach, Beauty Of The Beast offers a funny, moving and subversive look at male group dynamics and behaviour.

Following a gang of friends through a range of scenarios, Beauty Of The Beast peels back and uncovers the many faces of masculinity: strength, vulnerability, camaraderie and hostility, and explores what happens when affiliation becomes identity.

Laugh out loud funny in parts, dark and menacing in others, this tightly packed piece holds a mirror to our times, and is both emotional and thought provoking.
