USA, 1985: Rookie Police Cop Jimmy Johnson joined the force to protect, serve, and avenge his sister’s death...
But now Jimmy's in deep, partnered up with a disgraced, renegade Police Cop and leaned on by a racist Chief.
With guns loaded and safety catches off, Jimmy’s on a freewheeling adventure from the mean streets of America to the back-alleys of Mexico – where destiny awaits in the form of grizzled Mexican ex-Police Cop Juanita Gonzalez.
Multi-award-winners Police Cops present a cinematic comedy blockbuster joyride full of grit, guns and uncompromising facial hair – all set to a blasting 80s power-pop soundtrack. Featuring an expanded ensemble, original songs and a live band, their unique physical comedy mayhem is supercharged for their most ambitious show yet.
World premiere. Commissioned by New Diorama Theatre. Co-commissioned by The Lowry and New Wolsey Theatre.
