'Wickedly funny... the audience is constantly in stitches' Time Out

'A glorious comedy that leaps off the stage' The Times

'An Italian classic reborn as an unmissable police satire' Metro

An irrepressible fraudster known only as the Maniac is brought into Police Headquarters just as the officers are preparing for a judicial review of the recent 'accidental' death of a suspect in custody.

Outwitting his captors, the Maniac dupes them into performing a farcical recreation of the incident, exposing the absurd corruption and terrifying idiocy at the heart of the system.

A fun and exciting challenge for a flexible ensemble of seven to eight actors with a fantastic lead role for a comic performer this full-blooded adaptation from the BAFTA-nominated Tom Basden is both hysterically funny and deeply political, offering an unforgettable night out for audiences.
