Event details

180 Degree Chord synopsis

You’re the pride of the police force. You’re ruthless and unethical. Then fate intervenes. One moment you’re a detective sergeant and the next, a convicted murderer. Now you’re in the very same prison you sent most of your scalps to. News of your arrival spreads, the riot starts, and they come looking for you. A fellow inmate hides you in his cell and you flee together. But who is Connor and why is he protecting you exactly? You’ll soon find out as your past life comes back to haunt you.

This event is a hire of Storyhouse’s Garret Theatre. Find out more about 180 Degree Chord here.
