    The Lux Radio Theatre was one of the most prestigious and longest running shows from Radio’s Golden Age. It featured the greatest stars in Hollywood appearing in hour-long radio adaptations of their biggest motion pictures. Cecil B. DeMille was the host (from 1936-1945) for a lavish production of what was to become a veritable checklist of many of Hollywood’s best films from the mid-1930s through the mid-1950s. The stars of the movie usually appeared in their audio counterparts, although sometimes contracts or schedules meant that another actor took the part. The productions were broadcast live, with a full orchestra, in front of a large studio audience. Sponsored by Lever Brothers, the makers of Lux Soap, The Lux Radio Theatre came to radio in 1934 and lasted until 1955 for a total of 926 hour-long broadcasts. It transitioned to TV in 30-minute weekly installments in 1950 with James Mason as host.

    Crocodiles brings to life a dystopian, modern-fairytale town where fact and fiction weave as tightly and snag as easily as granny's knitting.
    In a sleepy seaside town, Cornelia Glass is busy spinning yarn. Witches are burnt in the town centre. Crocodiles lurk in the shallows. Boys who go to the big city are skinned alive by roving tramps.
    Cornelia's oldest son, Rudolph, is being forced to give up his Punch and Judy show. Matilda, his wife, is secretly writing her first romantic novel. Their daughter, Lucy, can tell the future. But when Cornelia's younger son, Vincent, returns from his glitzy television job in the big city, the stories that once held the Glass family together are in danger of smashing them to smithereens.
    Lee Mattinson's Crocodiles was runner-up for the 2011 Verity Bargate Award, and premiered at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, in October 2014.
