Police. Pigs. Fuzz. Rozzers. Guardians. Heroes. Puppets. People.
Meet Ted, Coral and Gaz, two cops and a robber. Ted wants to be a hero. Coral will do anything for a promotion. Gaz's best mate is a pigeon, he never stood a chance.
In response to anonymous interviews with serving officers and those affected by the force, Silent Uproar, with playwright Alex Oates (previous work includes Silk Road the Play), bring a dark comedy with live music that looks at how the world either side of the thin blue line isn't black and white, just many shades of grey. Hours of e-forms, stolen gnomes, fractured skulls; another day in the war on crime gone mad.
This production is supported by Hull City Council, Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.
