Home is the hardest place to hide.

Following a stellar Edinburgh run, Crocodile Fever explodes onto Circa’s mainstage. This thrilling dark comedy from Northern Ireland promises action, laughs and a killer finish.

Fianna Devlin crashes through the window, returning to the family home. It’s been 11 years since she saw her pious and guilt-ridden sister Alannah. It’s 1989, and tonight, fuelled by gin, Tatyos and ‘80s anthems, the two sisters unite to escape the claws of a monster.

Starring award-winning Karin McCracken and Hannah Kelly and Circa luminary Peter Hambleton. It might not end happily, but it will end gloriously.
