Preview: The Crocodile

Creating a Victorian Zoo set in St. Petersburg which houses a giant and somewhat hungry crocodile is not something you do ordinarily, but creating theatre is never an ordinary experience and that’s what we have have done for our production of The Crocodile which opens tomorrow night. Penned by Peep Show writer Tom Basden, the play tells the story of struggling actor Ivan Matveitch and the day his fortunes ironically change for the better when he is eaten alive by a crocodile.

The collection of poems were first published in 1999 as The World’s Wife, an anthology of work which re-examines myths and legends which traditionally have focus actively on a male protagonist.

Not to be confused with Jess […]
