by Tom Basden

A modern-ish mashup of a Dostoyevsky short story set in 19th Century Russia.


A fame hungry actor is eaten alive in Russian zoo, becoming the world’s first singing and dancing croc.


The tale of his meteoric rise to fame hides with a sharp social satire on fortune, hypocrisy and the perils of fame..


Comes with reptiles included.


And silly hats.
