Originally a co-production with

the National Theatre

The Street of Crocodiles is based on the life and fictions of writer Bruno Schulz. Threaded round the story of Joseph, a Polish Jew growing up in the 1920s, the play evokes the vast landscapes of Schulz's imagination and the startling absurdity and sensuality of his work.
