Full Length Play, Dark Comedy / 2m, 2f
In this comedic action/mystery of holiday nostalgia and athletic rigor, when a flood destroys the police station, the local cops set up shop in the nearby community center. Mysteries emerge. Criminals are chased. Racquetball is played. In this town, nothing is what it seems...or is it?
"Set in the 1980s, this downtown gem, full of minor-key revelations and offhand epiphanies, roots its quirky charm in an earnest and surprising realism. This charming, offbeat play from the Debate Society of Brooklyn is sneakily funny, but not at the expense of its characters, mumbling sweeties who play bingo, collect beer cans, and take pride in their work. " - The New York Times
"Packed with nonchalant theatrics and smoldering intensity. Bos, Thureen, and Butler have woven an accomplished yarn." – BackStage
"Wistful and sweet and uncanny. The delightful, oddly delicate Buddy Cop 2 is steeped in Christmas cheer. FOUR STARS. Critics' Pick." – Time Out New York
