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.
In this unique performance, audiences are asked to wear single-earpiece headphones, as Police Officers do, to tell this urgent story in a multi-sensory way.
Genuine, funny and tragic… A unique and enthralling performance. ★★★★★Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
