Do you mind if I have a quiet sit-down and a cup of tea? I’ve just been to hell and back.
— The Telegraph

Set in a post-apocalyptic version of London's East End where gang violence and drugs terrorise the community, the protagonists are a gang of youths surviving by holding parties for wealthy clients in which their wildest, most amoral fantasies are brought to life. As the wheels start to fall off their slick operation, the gang ultimately have to decide how far they’ll go to save the ones they love and preserve their humanity.

Philip Ridley’s controversial play MERCURY FUR is a violent premonition of a terror stricken world where only the faintest heartbeat of humanity remains.
