Sketch: Radiant Vermin, Soho Theatre

Radiant Vermin

Radiant Vermin is Philip Ridley’s new play about homelessness is an allegorical satire about the housing crisis that TimeOut says, “unfolds like a modern day Grimm tale” where a young couple ware prepared to go to the extremes to obtain their dream home.

Matt Trueman (WhatsOnStage) calls it a, “Thatcherite fairytale… unquestionably the more sophisticated picture of our crocked property market.”

The young couple – Olllie and Jill – played by BBC Three Pramface‘s Sean Michael Verey and Game of Thrones Gemma Whelan, are helped by Miss Dee, a modern day fairy godmother (Amanda Daniels).

Henry Hitchings said of their performances, “Fierce energy… dazzling performances.”

“The most precise, intense and breathtaking piece of performance, masterfully directed,” said The Stage critic Natasha Tripney

Radiant Vermin continues at London’s Soho Theatre until 12 April 2015 where Gemma, Sean and Amanda signed my sketch.

  1. Okay, I have to ask…how many shows do you attend in a month? This must be all you ever do! 🙂 Wonderful characters again. I don’t know how you do it!

    • I try and see as much as time and budget allows. Some of these shows are transfers, from earlier shows I’ve already drawn at other theatres. I also draw a bit of Broadway, which I don’t get to see in person. Frankly you’re spoiled for choice with great theatre in London!
