Stand By

Four police officers sit in a riot van. Called out to a domestic dispute which may turn violent, they are on standby; waiting to enter a flat where a man is wielding a samurai sword. We wait with them, experiencing the relationships forged through the stress of the job and the turmoil of being caught between following orders and protecting themselves. Written by a former police officer, Stand By lays bare the modern day police service. Uniquely, audiences are asked to wear single-earpiece headphones, as police officers do, to tell this urgent story in a multi-sensory way.
