Stand By

Thu 21 Sep 2017

Recommended for age 16+ | 75mins

Written by a former Police Officer, Stand By shows the modern-day Police Service laid bare.

Tickets: £12.50 / £10.50 Conc / £5.50 Students

Four Police Officers sit in a riot van. Called out to a domestic dispute, which may turn violent. They are on stand by; waiting to enter a flat where a man is wielding a samurai sword... 

We wait with them, experiencing the relationships forged through the stress of the job and the turmoil of being caught between following orders and protecting themselves.

To help put you right at the centre of the action you'll wear a comfortable, light-weight Police-style single earpiece during this performance (this can be used with hearing aids). It connects to a small receiver and delivers part of the dialogue for the show, truly immersing you in the experience. 

*Recommended for age 16+ and contains extremely strong language.
