A performance of theatre and dance.

“Lighthearted yet devilishly dark… A powerful exploration of our inner evil.” Edinburghguide.com

Hilarious and mesmerising, terrifying and absurd, A Brief History of Evil is a duet about lies and where they can lead us.

Who hasn’t embroidered the truth, or pretended to be someone they’re not? When all the lies are stripped away, who is left? When we look in the mirror, who looks back? Which version is really us?

In A Brief History of Evil two men take us on a hallucinogenic white-knuckle ride to find out what happens when we listen to the voices inside us, or don’t.

Created and performed by Ewan Downie and Jonathan Peck, with directorial assistance from Al Seed, A Brief History of Evil combines Company of Wolves’ electrifying movement style with the vulnerability, mockery, and satire of clown and buffon.

The result is a performance that is dangerous, relentless, and very, very funny.
