"I love you so much I could burst into flames."
Elliot and Darren are two brothers trying to get by in an increasingly hostile, dangerous and terrifying world; a dystopian version of London's East End. They deal butterflies to get by, but their main source of income is the 'party business'. Wealthy clients pay through the nose for their sickest, most depraved fantasies to be played out right in front of them. Pushing the limits of common decency, and banned by Faber & Faber due to its controversial content, 'Mercury Fur' is a horror play in a most original sense, and leaves us asking 'how far is too far?'
