Front Cover
Methuen Drama, 2003 - Drama - 210 pages
THE STREET OF CROCODILES is inspired by the life and stories of Polish writer Bruno Schulz (1892-1942). "This astounding play creates a vision of provincial Poland in the early part of the century as a restless ocean of unending flux, the miracle of Complicite's interpretation of Schulz's stories" - New York Times THE THREE LIVES OF LUCIE CABROL is adapted from John Berger's short story: "The story becomes an unsentimental evocation of peasant life, a hymn to the tenacity of love and a Brechtian fable about the world's unfairness'.You follow this Complicite version as intensely as you read a Grimms' fairytale" Financial Times MNEMONIC: "An ice-preserved body - from 5,200 years ago - forms the central image of Theatre de Complicite's dazzlingly imaginative meditation on memory and morality. Timely and unforgettable" - Independent "Theatre de Complicite ignore frontiers and cross them without official papers" - John Berger
