Presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy & Elbow Room
As a migrant, Sandhya is expected to work hard.

As an aged-care resident, Helen is expected to be lonely.

As a doctor, Priya is expected to take responsibility.

And as a nation, we expect them to stay out of sight.

But now there’s been an unexpected death. And we want answers. Sandhya, on the other hand, has questions - questions we might not be ready for.

Acclaimed playwright and screenwriter Vidya Rajan (In Search of Lost Scroll, Looking for Alibrandi) weaves a poignant, surreal story about those who exist outside the centre. Brought to the stage by award-winning Melbourne theatre company Elbow Room (Enlightenment, Prehistoric), and featuring Rachel Kamath (Shantaram) and Shamita Siva (Coconut), Crocodiles is a playful and intelligent exploration of who gets to make mistakes, and who cleans up the mess.

Approx. running time: 80mins, no interval.
