Synopsis of Play

 

Is it about a bicycle? Is it about Heaven? Is it about Hell? Is it about God? Is it about Life? Is it about Death? In Flann O’Brien’s hilarious, curious play The Third Policeman, we meet dead men walking however this will not be the strangest encounter you will have over the course of this evening. In this play you will hear of people who can see the colour of the wind, see bicycles that are half people and among others things watch an elevator descend to Eternity so with an open mind and an attuned ear suspend your disbelief and ENJOY!
