I Lie Down With A Crocodile – Songs from the reptile brain
Teaterøen, William Wains Gade 11, Cph K; Mon 11:00 & 19:00; tickets: 125kr,  concessions available, 3257 0808, info@teateroen.dk; www.teateroen.dk; duration: 75 mins; language: English
Jump on board the rickety bus for a guided tour through the criminal mind via the real-life case of the infamous British serial-killing couple Fred and Rosemary West. If you look to the left, you’ll see lucid reality and on the right, the deep and dark fantasies, but as we steam ahead into unknown territory, the sides merge, morality goes out the window and animal instincts kick in. The production makes one almost empathise with the disturbed with its comical spin on the truly evil.

For the ballet enthusiast this evening is not to be missed.
