Directed by Hector James
Performed by St Anthony House

Following the death of a young, falsely-accused anarchist in police custody, the police force is condemned by the general public. As they prepare for an inquiry into the incident, an unhinged showman known as the Maniac is arrested and begins to wreak havoc as he seizes the opportunity to put on a show, one that is an absurd recreation of their version of events. In his exposition, he reveals the cover-ups, corruption and deep idiocy of an institution hanging by a thread. Through his probing, hilarious, and startling investigation, the Maniac demonstrates himself as a hero of the people and a nightmare of the police. Join the boys of St Anthony House for an evening of zany political comedy, not to be missed.
