On Beauty


Two men are guarding the most famous statue in the world. They are ready to defend it from tourists and terrorists - and to catch the swooners. Sure enough, the first visitor of the day apparently suffers from Stendhal Syndrome and, overcome by the beauty before her, she faints. In quick succession, the two guards also find themselves overcome - but for very different reasons. 

With everyone collapsing, the question becomes: who catches the catchers?

On Beauty has had a number of productions, including the 2024 INK Festival in the UK.
