Mercury Fur archiveA derelict flat in a derelict estate in the East End of London. Two teenage boys smash through the door and start to prepare the flat for some kind of party, their language peppered with a lively chaos of people and events from history. In their version of world events JFK used to be President and married to a blond tart called Marilyn Monroe who he took to Germany where Hitler tried to give it her up the arse so JFK got the hump and dropped a couple of atom bombs turning all the Germans into chinkies... As more characters arrive, this dark and visceral play gets more sinister as we realise the exact nature of the party's main attraction.
