What happens when a pot grower who lives beside a police station falls in love with the officer that busts her?

What happens when a pot grower who lives beside a police station falls in love with the officer that busts her?

An original new play by theatre artist Jeff Forst, Cop Shop/Grow Op premieres on Saturday, October 26 at Nelsonʼs Capitol Theatre. Starring local celebrity Lisel Forst, Cop Shop/Grow Op celebrates the chaos that results when two worlds collide on either side of the law — and the backyard fence.

Cop Shop/Grow Opʼs experienced pair of actors each play two parts in this full-length expansion of Jeffʼs prize-winning dramatic monologue, that was recognized in the University of Victoria’s 50 Anniversary Contest with The Malahat Review. The past play Jeff wrote and produced onstage was Fore-play, his golf team-up with Lisel that packed the Capitol full of laughs for its entire run.

Showtimes for the world premiere of Cop Shop/Grow Op are 4:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 26. Tickets are available for $15 at the Capitol Theatre Box Office and online at capitoltheatre.bc.ca.

Prizes will be given to the most imaginative cannabis and cop-related costumes. This play is rated PG-13 for its swear-words; marijuana content; unofficial legalese; and risque double-entendres.

Do the star-crossed lovers beat the odds, or will they get locked up in the slammer?
