Police Cops In Space at The Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol from Tuesday 13th to Saturday 17th March 2018Posted on: 11 Mar 2018
To tweak an old movie tag line: In space, no-one can hear you laugh. Which is precisely what you'll be doing when Police Cops In Space starts its crazy, intergalactic run at The Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol from Tuesday 13th to Saturday 17th March 2018.
Presented by the multi award-winning triumvirate The Pretend Men and following a sell-out run at 2017's Edinburgh Fringe, it's described as "a low-fi sci-fi set in the most dangerous place on Earth....Space."
The adventure begins after the father of the last police cop in the universe, Sammy Johnson, is killed. After jettisoning in an unmanned escape pod and landing on a distant planet, Sammy teams up with alien fighter pilot Ranger and his cyborg companion C9 to avenge his father's death and prove himself as the best police cop in the universe.
Critically acclaimed as a fantastically entertaining slice of theatre - not to mention one of the zaniest, funniest comedy theatrical productions in the galaxy - this promises to be a wonderfully entertaining, cosmically offbeat delight.
Performances start at 8pm on all nights. Tickets cost £10 and can be purchased here.
The Wardrobe Theatre is located at The Old Market Assembly, 25 West Street, Bristol, BS2 0DF. Tel. 0117 902 0344
