Radiant Vermin (Modern Classics) By Philip Ridley Cover Image
Special Order


"The hallmarks of a Ridley classic; a fast-paced modern fairy-tale that burrows into the dark wormholes of the imagination ... reveals how below all that glitters, there's rarely gold." Exeunt

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 they did it all for their baby...

A wickedly comic satire about a young couple offered a 'too good to be true' way onto the property ladder. Playful, provocative, and viciously sharp, this outrageous black comedy is a meditation on how far we will go to satisfy - and justify - materialistic greed.

Radiant Vermin premiered in 2015 at Soho Theatre, London.

This Modern Classics edition features a brand new introduction by Aleks Sierz.
