Written by Adam McNamara, Directed by Joe Douglas, Produced by Utter, in association with The Byre Theatre, St Andrews
Four police officers sit in a riot van. Called out to a domestic dispute which may turn violent, they are on 'stand by', waiting for the go ahead to enter the flat where a man is wielding a samurai sword. We wait with them, experiencing their intensely close relationship forged through the stress of the job; their banter and boredom; and the tensions that reach boiling point. Against the backdrop of public sector cuts to frontline services, we experience the turmoil of the officers caught between following orders and their duty to protect each other.
Written by a former Police Officer, Stand By shows the modern-day Police service laid bare.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Stand By are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
