Crocodiles in cream
Like a happy dream . . .

A portrait of Lewis Carroll, drawn from his diaries, letters, poems and stories, which takes the audience into the half-dream, half-real world of this many-sided man: mathematician, logician, photographer, poet and storyteller. Kevin Moore’s interpretation of the complex and fascinating character of one of this country’s best-loved authors has received worldwide critical acclaim. Written, devised and directed by David Horlock, this is a moving and compelling one-man show.

“Moore is exquisitely engaging . . . moved to laughter and tears . . . scintillating . . . bitter and biting wit . . .” (Los Angeles Weekly)

“The mood of the piece – warm, delicate and sepia-hued – lingers long in the memory” (Time Out)
