    A fantastic metaphor that sheds a light on the aggressive nature of law enforcement. Well done.

    This play rocks. The premise doesn't overstay its welcome and the playwright knows exactly what jokes to pull from it. I'm going to be talking about this script every time a conversation about 'contemporary representation of police in drama' comes up. Sincere thanks to Jonathan Josephson for this weird, brilliant, short play.
