Mercury Fur

by Philip Ridley

Elliot is worried. He and his brother Darren are a unique team of party planners and their latest project, already weeks in preparation, has been brought forward to today. In a lawless and ravaged city, the boys and their team survive by bringing to life clients’ darkest fantasies. But as the light fades and events spiral out of control it becomes clear that the success of this particular party will guarantee not just their safety but their salvation. The world is at its worst. Let the party begin.

Part of the Paines Plough This Other England season.

It was reported that at least ten audience members a night left every show, unable to take the atmosphere of threat and violence portrayed on stage.
