“Captures all the mind-blowing apects of Appleby’s unique vision… this is a memorably subversive theatrical experience.”
Arnold Brown, comedian

Join Mr & Mrs Jumperman, Dorothy the Sheepwoman, Doctor Fetish and Roger the cross-dressing crocodile in this twisted, disturbed comedy for adults. Combining projections, physical theatre, dance and original music, Crocs adapts cartoonist Steven Appleby’s inner world to the stage for the very first time. Steven Appleby will be available to sign copies of his latest book Negative Affirmations in the ICA Bar between 7.30pm and 8.00pm before his play begins.
