The Third Policeman
By Flann OBrien
Thu 01 Jan 1970
A Surreal Comic Adventure
Adapted by Bill Scott, Meiert Avis and Robert Bayley
This summer Cornwalls Miracle Theatre ventures into a world somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and Father Ted, where the earth is not round but sausage-shaped; where eccentric policemen fall in love with bicycles and you can visit eternity via a rickety lift, hidden beside a lane in the heart of rural Ireland.
With its hilarious characters, streaks of dark humour and unforgettable plot twist, The Third Policeman earned its author, Flann OBrien, a world-wide reputation as one of Irelands great comic geniuses.
Flann OBriens scorching wit and delicious turn of phrase, combined with Miracles delight in physical comedy and absurdity, has to be a winning combination. Fans of this cult classic and newcomers alike should expect the unexpected!
