Music and Words: Darren Berry
The Crocodile of Old Kang Pow is a comic opera set against the backdrop of fetid 18th Century Paris.
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.
By utilising opera, gospel, puppetry, elixirs, profanity, irreverence and high art with low morals, creator Darren Berry weaves an elaborate, engaging, cautionary tale.
Age range: 13 upwards
Content Warning: Frequent use of strong language & sexual themes
Produced by Reptilian Productions
