Ollie and Jill want to tell you about their dream home.
Some of the things they did to get it you might find… shocking.
But they want you to know – whatever they did – they did it all for their baby.
A wickedly comic satire about a young couple offered a way out of the housing crisis, and just how far they’re prepared to go to get everything they’ve always wanted.
Playful and provocative, Radiant Vermin is the showstopping first comedy by internationally acclaimed Time Out, Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle Award-winner Philip Ridley. Directed by Evening Standard Award-nominee David Mercatali, it reunites the team behind the acclaimed premières of Tender Napalmand the Fringe First-winning smash hit Dark Vanilla Jungle, which astounded audiences in our Brewery Theatre in early 2014.
