We need to take a trip down to the station. Check out our gallery of production photos and trailer for the world premiere of Tony Tortora’s COPS, set in a Chicago police precinct office in 1957. It’s just opened at Southwark Warehouse, where it’s running until 1 February 2020 only. Time to get booking!
Chicago. 1957. Four cops, of different ages, classes and races, all suspicious of each other, must grab a gangster turned state witness before the Mob can get him.
Outside their office, the world is changing. The Civil Rights movement. Race riots. Mass consumerism. Rock ‘n’ Roll. Elvis has arrived. Sex is everywhere.
COPS, directed by Andy Jordan, is inspired by real-life events in the often brutal and corrupt world of 1950s Chicago policing and mob violence. The premiere production stars Roger Alborough, Jack Flammiger, Daniel Francis, James Sobol Kelly and Ben Keaton.
