Police Cops The Musical - Marvellous madness and mayhem

You like your comedy silly? Tick. You love a hilarious plot? Tick. This show is adored for its mayhem and madness, reviewed as “A stupidly silly and brilliant show” with “all the makings of a cult classic”. It’s back in the capital once more, on stage again at the Southwark Playhouse in Borough, for a springtime run between 1st March and 20th April 2024.

The plot? It’s 1985 and rookie cop Jimmy Johnson has joined the police to protect and serve, tasked with investigating a drug lord. But when he discovers his partner is a renegade policeman and he’s also being leaned on by the racist Chief, life as a cop doesn’t look so great after all. Poor Jimmy ends up on a harebrained adventure that takes him across the US and into Mexico, where he’s menaced by the frightening ex-cop Juanita Gonzalez.

About Police Cops The Musical

Following a highly successful season in 2023, the five-star-reviewed Police Cops: The Musical is returning to the Southwark Playhouse for a limited run. It sold out every year for five years in a row at the Edinburgh Fringe and has won a well-deserved reputation as a globally acclaimed comedy.

Written by the POLICE COPS themselves, the new score comes from the Brit Award-winning Ben Adams whose work on Eugenius! The Musical we loved so much. Expect their infamous fast-paced, action-packed physical comedy, and prepare your laughing gear for some serious exercise.
