What is it?
First Knight Theatre presents Radiant Vermin by Philip Ridley at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre in London, from Tuesday 20th November to Saturday 1st December.
Jill is expecting her first baby, and she and her husband Ollie are desperate to find a home of their own for their new family… But how?
In this diabolically funny, vicious dark comedy, a government department has found an ingenious solution to the twin dilemmas of housing shortage and homelessness. Be prepared to be appalled at yourself for laughing out loud at the horrors revealed in this play.
Home ownership is slipping out of reach: no matter how hard they work, it’s becoming more and more difficult for young people to buy a home of their own. Levels of homelessness are rising: more than 2,000 people a year will have no roof over their head and end up sleeping rough.
At a time of crisis in the housing market, how far would you be prepared to compromise your principles to secure a home for you and your family?
Philip Ridley has written 13 adult stage plays including The Pitchfork Disney (1990), and the multi-award-winning The Fastest Clock in the Universe (1992). Ridley has also written several plays and award-winning books for children, and is a successful screenplay writer (The Krays) and film director (The Reflecting Skin and Heartless starring Timothy Spall and Eddie Marsan).
