About the play:
A routine domestic disturbance call sends two Chicago cops- childhood friends and now partners- on a harrowing journey that will test their loyalties and change their lives. This noir drama explores the force that bond us and the forces that tear us apart, amid a backdrop of racism, police brutality, the war on drugs, affirmative action and life on the rough streets of Chicago.
A rollercoaster ride of suspense and surprises that takes the good cop/ bad cop genre to a level all its own by exposing the humor and humanity that resolutely beats within a heart of darkness. Famously produced on Broadway with Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig it sold out every performance.
Playwright Keith Huff is a 30 year veteran of the Storefront theater scene in Chicago.
