Stand By

About Stand By

Four Police Officers sit in a riot van. Called out to a domestic dispute, which may turn violent, they are on standby; waiting to enter a flat where a man is wielding a samurai sword.

We wait with them, experiencing the relationships forged through the stress of the job and the turmoil of being caught between following orders and protecting themselves.

Written by a former Police Officer, Stand By shows the modern-day Police Service laid bare.

A unique performance, audiences are asked to wear single-earpiece headphones, as Police Officers do, to tell this urgent story in a multi-sensory way.

Presented by Utter.

Contains Strong Language.

Suitable for ages 16+


*please note: a £1 service charge per transaction applies for bookings made by phone or online. There is no service charge for tickets purchased in person or for tickets booked by phone and later collected from the Box Office.

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.
