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.
