THINGS COPS KNOW
by Bill Mesce, Jr.

Based on Adam Plantinga’s
acclaimed 2014 non-fiction book,
400 THINGS COPS KNOW:  STREET-SMART LESSONS FROM A VETERAN PATROLMAN,
the play looks at the world through a cop’s weary eyes—the audience must decide if it offers any insight into how and why headline-caliber tragedies occur so often on our streets.

THINGS COPS KNOW
is the first presentation
of the fall series.

Bill Mesce, Jr. is an author, screenwriter, and playwright.  His novel THE ADVOCATE was a winner of the Writers’ Foundation’s “America’s Best” competition, and his latest novel, A COLD AND DISTANT PLACE, received an Eric Hoffer Award earlier this year.  He’s also a two-time recipient of the New Jersey Council on the Arts Individual Artist Award.  His most recent books are INSIDE THE RISE OF HBO:  A PERSONAL HISTORY OF THE COMPANY THAT TRANSFORMED TELEVISION (“...truly extraordinary...very highly recommended...” – MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW) and NO RULE THAT ISN’T A DARE:  HOW WRITERS CONNECT WITH READERS (...illuminating and invaluable.” – SERVING HOUSE:  A JOURNAL OF LITERARY ARTS).
