Police Cops In Space (The Pretend Men)

By | Published on Monday 21 August 2017

If you can’t be the best police cop on Earth, you can be best the best police cop in Space. That’s according to The Pretend Men, who return to the Fringe with the space edition of their spot-on, all-American police blockbuster parody. In a bid to save the galaxy from the evil corporation ‘Futuretech’, good-for-nothing, son-of-the-best-police-cop-in-town Jack reluctantly teams up with the constantly bragging fighter pilot Ranger, to kick some serious criminal butt. The trio, who share brilliant on-stage chemistry, deliver hysterically exaggerated and physically mesmerising scenes with unfaltering energy levels and monumentally punchy delivery. These kids have got some serious gusto, Sergeant.

Pleasance Dome, until 27 Aug.
