CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.


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.
Performers Ben Whishaw, Fraser Ayres, Robert Boulter, Dominic Hall, Harry Kent, Sophie Stanton, Shane Zaza.
Author Philip Ridley. Producer Drum Theatre. Producer Paines Plough. Director John Tiffany. Design Laura Hopkins. Lighting Natasha Chivers. Sound Nick Powell.
