Officially founded in 2001, the Crooked Codpiece Company is a Lincoln, NE based theatrical troupe that presents the best of classic and contemporary theater.
Our mission is to give our patrons a thoroughly enjoyable and inspiring evening of theatre.
On a deserted stretch of beach a middle-aged couple, relaxing after a picnic lunch, talk idly about home, family and their life together. She sketches, he naps, and then, suddenly, they are joined by two sea creatures—lizards who have decided to leave the ocean depths and come ashore. Initial fear, and then suspicion of each other, are soon replaced by curiosity and, before long, the humans and the lizards (who speak admirable English) are engaged in a fascinating dialogue.
The lizards, who are at a very advanced stage of evolution, are contemplating the terrifying, yet exciting, possibility of embarking on life out of the water; and the couple, for whom existence has grown flat and routine, holds the answers to their most urgent questions. These answers are given with warmth, humor and poetic eloquence, and with emotional and intellectual reverberations that will linger in the heart and mind long after the play has ended.
The CCC is made up of its founding members and the best talent that the Lincoln area has to offer. Take a look at our list of current and past members.Learn More
