Table Read 01
Crocodile Fever is a surreal comic thriller set in rural South Armagh, 1989. Beneath the oppressive loom of a hot thunderstorm, estranged sisters Alannah and Fianna are forced to reunite in their childhood home, ever mindful of their twisted reptile of a father lying upstairs, the local squaddies, and the peculiar electricity bewitching the night.
