Our client Meghan Tyler‘s Crocodile Fever has its world premiere at the Traverse Theatre in August and is one of the most anticipated shows of this year’s Edinburgh Festival period.
Northern Ireland, 1989. A farmhouse window smashes, and rebellious Fianna Devlin crashes back into the life of her pious sister Alannah.
Together in the unlovely family home for the first time in years following the death of their tyrannical father, the sisters are back at each other’s throats in seconds. And when Fianna discovers that the old reptile is in fact still very much alive, all hell breaks loose as they confront his hideous legacy.
Fuelled by Taytos, gin, 80s anthems and a chainsaw, it’s the Devlin sisters versus the world. It can’t end happily, but it can end gloriously.
Like Thelma and Louise’s punk daughter, Meghan Tyler’s surreal Crocodile Fever is a grotesque black comedy celebrating sisterhood whilst reminding us that the pressure cooker of The Troubles is closer than we imagine.
Directed by the Traverse Theatre’s award-winning Gareth Nicholls (Ulster American, Letters to Morrissey).
Runs Friday 2 August – Sunday 25 August

“The Ancient Persians: when it came to major decisions they all had to agree when they were pissed, and they all had to agree when they were hideously hungover.”
An online petition to bring back the death penalty is rattling the nation, and the government must respond.
