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 wacky parody of buddy cop movies. More…

It's 1976. Straight-laced rookie Police Cop Jimmy Johnson is out to avenge his brother's death. Teamed up with a disgraced renegade, the pair begin to unearth the soily secrets of the case. 'Police Cops' is a cinematic joyride, speeding down Adventure Avenue in a souped-up squad car.

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

“Folds together physical comedy, pop culture references, the occasional dance number, ingenious lo-fi costumes and props, and just plain good-fun nonsense...The perfect balm for a weary world...There’s a big murder reveal, followed by a Metallica dance number. It’s not supposed to make sense. It’...

for a previous production "Pastiche on a grand scale, taking the buddy cop genre, putting a self-aware spin on it, and playing tropes that were once taken extremely seriously to the very edge of sheer lunacy. The results are hilarious...It is the kind of theatre that entertains and engages audiences entirely over its hour...
