Etcetera Theatre



A death in the family changed Rachel and Billy’s lives forever, now their lives are coming to an end.

 An infestation of rats in their new flat reveals very different insanities. Billy, a man with an obsessive personality and a history of violence sees in the rats an opportunity to unleash his desire for murderous devastation. Rachel, a grieving mother, sees in them the reincarnated soul of her daughter, Alice.

 VERMIN is a fast paced two-hander dealing with joy, excitement, love, trust, fear and death. Billy and Rach retell the story of their imploding relationship with all the pace and carnage of a train crash. Romantic, right?

 They both need you to hear their stories, their version of events and the question is which of them, if either, is worthy of redemption?
