PRESENT DAY (1976). Straight-laced rookie Police Cop Jimmy Johnson is out to avenge his brother’s death, and (with the help of his new partner) he’s got to go it alone!
Teamed up with a disgraced, retired renegade named Harrison, the pair begin to unearth the soily secrets that the case holds. Police Cops is a cinematic joyride, speeding down Adventure Avenue in a souped-up squad car. Oh, and did I mention...the steering wheel is made out of guns.
Returning from complete sell out runs at the Soho Theatre, The Cape Town Fringe 2016 and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, Police Cops' (formally known as The Pretend Men) critically acclaimed, multi award-winning comedy blockbuster returns once more for an action packed hour of adrenaline fuelled physical comedy, cinematic style and uncompromising facial hair.
