Fans of Law and Order are rejoicing on the streets of Melbourne today with the announcement of an “hilarious and… truly unique Melbourne comedy”’s return to the stage this year.

The 2022 season will see new officers boarding the train, with performers Kyle Cuthbert, Kiara Ariza Stellato Pledger, Zoë Harlen, Sian Crowe, Tam Dahmen, Tom Costigan, and Asher Griffith-Jones joining the team.

Fae O’Toole and Zachary Dixon met whilst studying at Federation University Arts Academy, and have been collaborating as writer and director, respectively, since the show was first performed in 2019.
