The Crocodile of Old Kang Pow - Act 1 (Interactive Broadcast)


Produced by Reptilian Productions

There is also a live performance of The Crocodile of Old Kang Pow at The Cockpit Theatre at 21:00-22:00, Saturday 12th September 2020.

This broadcast includes a recording of the live performance, and additional live content.

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.

The ‘Covid’ Croc’ will differ from a regular performance as it intermingles live singing and acting alongside pre-recorded film of the show and will be using only 2 singers and a mute artist playing multiple roles to tell the story.

Additional content for the broadcast:

The Croc will offer a gospel singing workshop as part of the stream.

Age range: 13 upwards
Content Warning: Frequent use of strong language & sexual themes

Live Broadcast: Tuesday 15th September - 6:00pm
Duration: 1 hour
