From press release:
After a string of award-winning hits and a successful remount of its’ psychological cop thriller, Slip, at the Tarragon Workspace, Circlesnake Productions is excited to partner with Greenline Theatre to bring a fan favourite out of their archives. Special Constables brings summer blockbuster action to life on the Factory Mainstage at the 2017 Toronto Fringe.
Special Constables is a comedy thrill-ride that chronicles the return of Toronto’s most elite police force: the TTC Transit Police. Set in the turbulent pre-apocalyptic fears of the year 2012, Jameson, a former constable, is responsible for the crumbling of the Special Constables. But when a Metropass counterfeiting ring threatens to take over the TTC, Jameson has one shot to redeem both his former unit and himself. Starring independent theatre darling Danny Pagett as Former Special Constable Jameson and, Second City Mainstage alum, Nigel Downer as the monologuing mastermind Three Tone. The supporting cast draws from all over Toronto’s independent theatre scene: Nelu Handa (Bad Dog Theatre, Yas Kween), Connor Bradbury(Sex T-Rex, Bad Dog Theatre), Chloe Sullivan (Unit 102), and Mikaela Dyke (A Vagrant) play the rest of the ensemble in this goof-filled caper.
