About The Crocodile of Old Kang Pow

One’s a fetid swamp, and the other has a lot of crocodiles. The Marquis De Sade has lost his libido and must find it or lose his head to the chopping block of Marie Antoinette. His quest takes him to a mythical world to petition its Crocodile God of fertility, who is having libido-related problems of his own… By utilising opera, gospel, puppetry, elixirs, profanity, irreverence and high art with low morals and swashbuckling sword fights, creator Darren Berry weaves an elaborate, engaging, cautionary tale. Theatre company Reptilian will workshop and perform ‘The Croc’ at The Playground Theatre, London, with: 4 live & 2 virtual singer/actors, musicians, giant puppets and multimedia creatures score. This will be part of the development stage of a truly unique piece of theatre which will entertain, delight & disturb audiences, as well as challenging any pre-conceptions of opera anyone ever may have had. Age Recommendation: 14+
