Defective Inspector

The Defectors

Richard P. Cooper, an eccentric ex-detective, presents his (heavily embellished) exploits on the stage (with mixed results)! He guides the audience through his journey to the USA, grappling assassination plots and three-legged dogs, while two hapless drama students embody every other questionable character. This “laugh-a-minute romp” is sure to elate and baffle in equal measure!

“Action-packed hour of ridiculousness and hilarity... leaving the audience in stitches." ★★★★
- Lost in Theatreland

"Ace comedic timing... revels in detective film tropes, brilliantly executing this meta-theatrical farce. " ★★★★ - Fringe Biscuit

“Manages to cram more action into an hour than some other plays contain in two and a half.” - ★★★★ LondonTheatre1

"A madcap hour of multi-roling mayhem... quite the enjoyable romp" - There Ought to be Clowns

"If he existed, Cooper would be proud.” - British Theatre Guide
