Philip Ridley’s wickedly comic satire about a young couple offered a way out of the housing crisis arrives at Soho Theatre. Read More >

Philip Ridley’s wickedly comic satire Radiant Vermin tells the story of a young couple offered a way out of the housing crisis and just how far they’re prepared to go for it.

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…

Playful, provocative and viciously sharp, Radiant Vermin reunites Ridley with director David Mercatali and designer William Reynolds following their work on award-winning hits Tender Napalm and Dark Vanilla Jungle.

The production stars Game Of Thrones’ Gemma Whelan, who appeared in Ridley’s Dark Vanilla Jungle, Pramface’s Sean Michael Verey and Amanda Daniels (RSC’s Days Of Significance).
