Philip Ridley

Published by Methuen

Philip Ridley has been described as 'the creator of some of the most peculiar, grotesque and compelling British plays (and films) of the last several years'

This second volume of plays brings together his recent major works that form his apocalyptic distopian trilogy

Set in the near future in a society ravaged by a violent, reckless generation all three plays combine Ridley's trademark mix of story-telling, memories of the past, cruel farce and vicious morality

Mercury Fur (2005) asks how far we are willing to go to protect those that we love in a society where humanity has become debased and survival depends on the choices we are willing to make

Leaves of Glass (2007) is a deeply human drama that shifts between elegy for the past and a chilling exploration of the power of loss and grief

It was described by one critic as 'a brilliantly written, imaginative and genuinely chilling account of evil in everyday life ... a must-see'

Piranha Heights (2008) brings the storm of change brought about by a new world order into a domestic setting

'With this truly remarkable new play, Philip Ridley completes an East End trilogy of siblings and apocalypse that will one day be rated one of the high water marks of British drama in the first decade of this century ... a work of dark fantasy and genius' ~ What's on Stage
