The director talks to Aleks Sierz about his current revival of Philip Ridley’s visionary 2005 play, Mercury Fur, in a powerful production for the new Greenhouse Theatre Company at the Old Red Lion fringe venue in London. Recorded: 11 April 2012.

Mercury Fur can be seen as an example of what might have happened if last summer’s riots had gone on, day by day, month by month.
