About the show

59E59 presents the three-man British comedy company The Pretend Men's stateside debut, where they bring their super-charged inventive physical storytelling to a story of police officers...in space! More…

After his father is killed by an evil robot, Sammy Johnson is the last Police Cop in the universe. On a distant planet, Sammy must team up with an alien fighter pilot and his trusty cyborg to embark on an intergalactic adventure to become the best damn Police Cop in space.

'Police Cops in Space' is being performed in repertory with its companion piece 'Police Cops.'
