The Flying Squad
A roaming piece for festivals & events
Our hapless detectives have a crime to solve, but all eye-witness accounts lead them to only one conclusion – the culprit is one of their own. Will they solve the crime, will they get back to the station before lunch, and most importantly, was there even a crime to solve?
Fun, slapstick and audience participation abound. Prepare yourself for sleuthing silliness a-plenty with The Flying Squad.
The Detectives of the Department of Strange Events were first created as part of The Curious Case of Aberlliw, a Fantastic for Families Awards shortlisted piece of hybrid theatre in coproduction with LAStheatre, Awen Cultural Trust & Carmarthenshire Theatres. Here they take centre stage as their antics see them investigating themselves. The Flying Squad is an hilarious, wordless, moveabout clowning piece.
