Where the lines blur between conversation and interrogation. Three conversations grow increasingly uneasy.

A new play by award-winning writer Gabriel Gbadamosi, exploring a time of distrust and our deep ambivalence about the ways we police each other.

‘The play opens the question of why a tactic aimed at policing drugs, violence and terrorism (and that stops seven black people for every one white person) has grown into a flashpoint for wider, and deeper, flaws in a volatile and frightened social psyche.’ (Gbadamosi)
