Ivan is a struggling actor who hasn't yet achieved the recognition he feels he deserves.

But all that is about to change when, one afternoon at the zoo with his friend Zack, he is swallowed whole by a crocodile.

Based on Dostoyevsky's short story, The Crocodile is a ferociously funny, eye-poppingly theatrical play about art, animals and what happens when you try to take on the system from within... a crocodile.

It premiered as part of the 2015 Manchester International Festival, in a co-production with The Invisible Dot.
