The Crocodile
A Ludicrous Comedy by Tom Basden

Some swearing. Recommended for ages 13+.

Ivan, a struggling actor, is angry with the world, the Tsar, and the zoo his best friend Zack has brought him to. Zack feels it’s time for Ivan to move on from acting and get a real job… like making cushions. But, Ivan’s not in it for money or fame; he’s in it for the art!

That is, until he gets up close and personal with a crocodile …

The Crocodile is a surreal, slapstick comedy from award-winning actor and writer Tom Basden (After Life, Plebs, Fresh Meat), based on the Dostoevsky short story.
