Dark, hilarious, violent, gruesome... Crocodile Fever is a smack in the face in all of the best ways possible.
The unrelenting action and razor-sharp script propel us forward, towards a surreal and devastating conclusion. Outstanding.
Slaps the audience right in the face with entertainment in every way possible... Simply unmissable.
The most insane production ever... set to be the talking point of this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.
This play is a bloody masterpiece in every sense.
May be the most impressive single piece of theatre that this reviewer sees in the whole of Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019
You are unlikely to find better performances at this year’s fringe festival.
A snappy black comedy from Meghan Tyler, fuelled by Taytos and gin.
A gleefully dark and gory comedy.
I loved its whip-crack script and the audaciousness of the frankly bananas finale.
Exciting and deeply impressive.
Brilliant, batshit and brutal.
Meghan Tyler’s dark comedy meets with a roar of approval that feels like a release of feminist fury and anti-colonial rage
Gareth Nicholls’ turbo-charged production… fearlessly audacious assault on a system about to be blown apart.
Some may think this is OTT. I think Quentin Tarantino would be jealous.
Brilliantly acted by Lisa Dwyer Hogg (Fianna), Lucianne McEvoy (Alannah) and Sean Kearns (‘Da’), it is, ultimately, a bold and emotive work of comic magical realism.
Jet black comedy mixed with just a dash of Dali
Crocodile Fever is a blacker-than-black comedy which scoops you up in its jaws and refuses to let go.
Director Gareth Nicholls expertly navigates the shift in the play’s style from naturalistic family drama to full-on horror slasher.
Gareth Nicholls' superbly controlled, superbly acted production.
A deliciously deranged, wildly bonkers 45 minutes of violence, vengeance and the rediscovery of the strength of sisterhood.
