★★★★★ “A work of dark fantasy and genius… One of the high water marks of British drama.” – Michael Coveney on ‘Piranha Heights’, What’s On Stage
‘Look – they’re fading. Those liars. Dissolving… It’s the end of their world… The birth of a new one… Our one… Our world.’
It’s Mother’s Day and mother is dead. Now her two sons gather in her home to argue about the truth of their childhood. But a storm is approaching…with a violent new truth all of its own.
Piranha Heights is non-stop, filthily poetic and a searing insight into the disenchantment of young people today.
D.E.M. Productions presents a bold new interpretation of Philip Ridley’s acclaimed play directed by Max Barton.
“It’s shocking… addictive… and inexplicably attractive…” – Philip Fisher, British Theatre Guide
“Ridley is never a playwright to miss.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
“The Playwright of the Apocalypse.” – Hermione Eyre, The Independent
