If you are looking for the truth, when do you stop living a lie?
Chicago. 1957. Four cops, different ages, classes and races, all living a lie and mired in mutual suspicion, have to grab a gangster-turned-state-witness before the Mob can get him.
Outside their office the world is changing. Race riots. Mass consumerism. Civil Rights. Rock ‘n’ Roll. Sex is everywhere…
Inspired by real-life events in the often brutal and corrupt world of 1950’s Chicago policing and Mob violence, this powerful new play lays bare masculinity and racism with authentic characters, razor-sharp comic banter and soulful poignancy.
Recommended for ages 15+. Please note this show contains smoking and strong language.
