Cops And Friends Of Cops is a classic morality play, as much about what’s right and wrong, as it is a thrilling moment-to-moment suspense-fueled ride. It introduces us to five men: Paul, Dom, Emmett, Sal, and Roosevelt. Men of different ages and life experiences.
On this night Paul walks into the bar with a secret. Dom, the bartender, just wants to get through his shift. Roosevelt’s had just about enough of his partner Sal’s bullying sense of humor. So begins this two-act play occurring roughly in real-time about regret, loss, explicit and implicit racism, and wrestling with masculine identity in a constantly-changing contemporary America.
