Summary note
First performed at Plymouth's Drum Theatre in 2005, 'Mercury Fur' is set in a lawless, degraded city, where the British Museum has been looted and the zoo is full of dead animals, and eating the wings of hallucinogenic butterflies lets people watch assassinations of political leaders, or feel they are punching someone in the face. But Elliot and his brother Darren survive by realising their clients' darkest fantasies are more than just hallucinations. The party that they have been planning has been brought forward to tonight, the light is fading which will make it difficult to film, and the small boy doesn't look as though he'll struggle as much as he should do. But events spiral even further out of control and test what the brothers would do to save the person they love.
