    Name: Whitefish Theatre Co. presents "Radiant Vermin" (Black Curtain production)
    Date: March 17, 2021 - March 18, 2021
    Event Description:
    How far will you go to get your dream home?

    Jill is expecting her first baby and she and her husband Ollie are desperate to find a home of their own for their new family. When a mysterious stranger offers the young couple an ideal house, it prompts the question: at a time of crisis in the housing market, how far would you be prepared to compromise your principals to secure a home for you and your family? Be prepared to be appalled at yourself for laughing aloud at the horrors revealed in Radiant Vermin, a wickedly funny, pitch-black satire about consumerism, gentrification, and inequality. Says the New York Times, “like a Brothers Grimm story, Radiant Vermin is executed with its own consistent fantasy logic, deployed to remind us of the dangers of getting what we wish for.”

    NOTE: Viewers are reminded that as a Black Curtain production, there will minimal staging, no set or props, and actors may reference their scripts in both the live and film versions.
    “Mr. Ridley is always a writer of daring and satanic imagination, with a sui generis vocabulary to match . . . But more recently he's been weaving theatrical fantasies that bear the relation to everyday reality that your dreams, and especially your nightmares . . . The exotic worlds he conjures feel deeply familiar, even to the point of banality, which is what makes them all the scarier and all the more revelatory.” – Ben Brantley, New York Times
    “Cheerfully twisted social satire by Philip Ridley . . . Ridley - in full-on comic mode” – The Times
    “It's a deeply macabre, stingingly funny modern fairy tale that shows its two protagonists wading deeper and deeper into murky moral territory. . . . It's deliberately outrageous and surreal but Ridley pulls it off brilliantly . . . A clever, funny and provocative cautionary fable.” – Financial Times
    “Ridley's is a darkly funny morality play” – Guardian
