Stand By

Thursday 21 September, 7.30pm

Macrobert Arts Centre


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


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.

During this performance audiences are given single-earpiece headphones to wear, as Police Officers do, to tell this urgent story in a multi-sensory way.

*Recommended for age 16+. Contains extremely strong language.
