Philip Ridley’s MERCURY FUR is now showing as part of The New Group’s new season. Click here for more details!
May 22, 2015 |

In a society ravaged by warring gangs and a hallucinogenic-drug epidemic, Elliot and Darren, under the sway of the ruthless Spinx, throw parties for rich clients in abandoned apartment buildings – parties that help guests act out their darkest, most sinister fantasies. As the teenage brothers prepare for the latest festivities, some unexpected guests threaten the balance of the world they have created in the midst of this dystopian nightmare. Hailed as a “savage and utterly gripping drama” by Ben Brantley, Philip Ridley’s Mercury Fur is a terrifying, yet tender, look at just how far people will go to protect those they love the most.
