Buddy Cop 2
October 20 - November 6, 2011
In this off-beat comedic mystery of holiday nostalgia and athletic rigor, nothing is what it seems...or is it? For the residents of Shandon, Indiana, it's Christmas in August as the town rallies to honor a girl's dying wish and the local police fight crime from the community center after a flood. Mysteries emerge and racquetballs fly. As the fruitcakes and Christmas watermelons collect, this quirky and touching play shows how a community unites to help one of its own, and how, even in the smallest of towns, secrets are waiting to be revealed.
Originally produced by the daring The Debate Society in association with the Ontological Theater in Spring 2010. "This downtown gem, full of minor-key revelations and offhand epiphanies, roots its quirky charm in an earnest and surprising realism. Charming, offbeat, sneakily funny. Critics pick."
