Crocodile Fever

Crocodile FeverT1142792589
Ding dong the wankjob's dead. Cracked his back. Six feet under. Tiocfaidh ar la. Freedom at last. Northern Ireland, 1989. A farmhouse window smashes, and rebellious Fianna Devlin crashes back into the life of her pious sister Alannah. Together in the unlovely family home for the first time in years, the sisters are back at each other's throats in seconds. And when they are forced to confront their tyrannical father's hideous legacy, all hell breaks loose. Fuelled by Taytos, gin, 80s tunes and a chainsaw, it's the Devlin sisters versus the world. It can't end happily, but it can end gloriously. Like Thelma and Louise's punk daughter, Meghan Tyler's surreal Crocodile Fever is a grotesque black comedy celebrating sisterhood whilst reminding us that the pressure cooker of The Troubles is closer than we imagine.
