Multi award-winning playwright Philip Ridley returns to the Arcola with his contemporary classic Ghost From A Perfect Place, a scorchingly dark comedy where a monster from the past meets the monsters of the present.

Back in the swinging sixties, Travis Flood led a gang that terrorised East London. Now, after an absence of many years, he returns to find his old turf in the clutches of a new kind of gang…with a new kind of leader. Rio - ruler of a mob of girls - instantly captivates Travis with her haunting beauty. But soon a shocking story begins to emerge - one that shatters both their distorted memories.

Twenty years after its explosive premiere at Hampstead Theatre, Ghost From A Perfect Place has its first major revival under the direction of Russell Bolam, following his critically-acclaimed production of Ridley’s Shivered (Southwark Playhouse 2012). 

Praise for Ghost From A Perfect Place and Philip Ridley:

“Astonishingly affecting... startling” - Evening Standard

“A lethal cocktail complete with its own antidote. Its poetry is like a knuckleduster in words” - Sunday Times

“Lit up by sharp humour…the author's quirky imagination at its best” - Daily Telegraph

“Breathtaking in every way” - Daily Mail

“Ridley holds no illusions about the London life he creates on stage. Hair-raisingly real” - The Times

“Ridley is never a playwright to miss” - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
