A portrait of Lewis Carroll drawing from his diaries, letters, poems and stories, taking the audience into the world, half-dream, half-reality of this complex many-sided figure: mathematician, logician, photographer, poet and story-teller.

Written, devised and directed by David Horlock, Crocodiles in Cream is a moving and compelling one-man-show. Kevin Moore’s interpretation of the complex and fascinating character of one of the country’s most appreciated authors has received critical acclaim around the world. 

Having premiered at the Salisbury Playhouse the show has been performed worldwide including at London’s National Theatre, Athens, Turkey, The Netherlands, Bermuda, Saudi Arabia, Ireland, Barbados, Los Angeles, Antibes and New York.
