Description

It's the 1980s. One of the Midland's first Black Police officers and an acclaimed gospel guitarist faces conflict on the streets, at work and in church. To bring harmony to all this discord he must find the spirit behind the letter of the law.

Inspired by the life of community hero Trevor Prince, Community Service is an emotional and uplifting theatre show, full of live music and wit. It is set against a backdrop of Thatcher’s Britain, the Handsworth Riots, miner’s strikes and casual racism. Meanwhile, in the Pentecostal Church a schism is being questioned by children who are listening to secular music on the radio and rebelling against the strict rules of their immigrant parents.

Created by internationally acclaimed local company Stan’s Cafe with musician Reisz Amos (AKA Odd Priest) and DJ/Choreographer Paul ‘Steady’ Steadman.
