Prepare for an anarchic farce at the police station

A mysterious death has occurred at a police station and the questions are piling up. Did the anarchist jump or was he pushed? As the police get ready for an investigation, a flamboyant showman named the Maniac is taken into custody. In a twisted turn of events, he seizes the moment to put on an absurd spectacle and lead the police on a satirical journey to uncover the truth about the incident.

Tom Basden's sharp-witted adaptation of Dario Fo's classic farce brings a contemporary twist to the original story and exposes the cover-ups, corruption, and mind-boggling stupidity within the police force. With an outstanding performance from Daniel Rigby as the Maniac, this play is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you in stitches.
