Logan Brown and Matthew Benjamin's hilarious take on casual carnage is a laugh-a-minute, fast-paced classic cop-caper, with drugs, guns and bodies in car trunks. But it combines this tale of sexy young things behaving badly with a twister of a morality tale, begging the question what would you do if you could get away with it? How to Act Around Cops is a timely and illuminating insight into the corrupting effect of power in the world's richest nations, and asks the question: if you're untouchable surely you can do anything and get away with it?
Production at the Pleasance Courtyard at the Edinburgh Fringe 2004 followed by a transfer to the Soho Theatre, London.
