The New Group presents the Off-Broadway premiere of Philip Ridley's Mercury Fur, which launched the company's 2015-16 season last night, August 19, 2015 (previews began August 5). MERCURY FUR by Philip Ridley is directed by Scott Elliott and runs at The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre (480 West 42nd Street).

In a society ravaged by warring gangs and a hallucinogenic-drug epidemic, Elliot and Darren, under the sway of the ruthless Spinx, throw parties for rich clients in abandoned apartment buildings, parties that help guests act out their darkest, most sinister fantasies. As the teenage brothers prepare for the latest festivities, some unexpected guests threaten the balance of the world they have created in the midst of this dystopian nightmare. The New Group opens its 2015-2016 season with Philip Ridley'sMercury Fur, a terrifying yet tender look at just how far people will go to protect those they love the most.

Mercury Fur features Jack DiFalco, Bradley Fong, Paul Iacono, Peter Mark Kendall, Emily CassMcDonnell, Sea McHale, Zane Pais and Tony Revolori.

The design team includes Derek McLane (Scenic Design), Susan Hilferty (Costume Design), Jeff Croiter (Lighting Design) and M.L. Dogg (Sound Design). Valerie A. Peterson is the Production Stage Manager. Casting by Judy Henderson, CSA.

This production marks the Off-Broadway premiere of Mercury Fur, bringing back Philip Ridley to The New Group, where his play The Fastest Clock in the Universe received its US premiere in 1998. Mercury Fur premiered in February 2005 at the Plymouth Theatre Royal and transferred to the Menier Chocolate Factory, London in March 2005.
