About Stand By

Utter, in association with The Byre Theatre, St Andrews presents Stand By.

Writer: Adam McNamara
Director: Joe Douglas

Where: Army@TheFringe, Army Reserve Centre, 89 East Claremont St, EH7 4HU
In Association with Summerhall Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Age Suitability: 16+

BSL: 15 August, 6.45pm

Four Police Officers sit in a riot van. Called out to a domestic dispute, which may turn violent, they are on stand by; 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.
