Five Americans find themselves trapped in comfort and surrounded by luxury when violence breaks out at the seaside resort they are visiting. As the insurrection moves closer, they discover that good taste can have deadly consequences.

Inspired by the work of playwright and historian Charles Mee, Jr., Beautiful Things is a new workshopped play created by nimbus which examines the idea that 'if you wish to have high culture, you must have leisure, if you would have leisure, you must have excess wealth, you must exploit someone.' And what would life be like if there was nothing beautiful, nothing extraordinary?
