Stoneham Theatre is to present the New England premiere of Buddy Cop 2, October 20-November 6, written by The Debate Society (Hannah Bos, Paul Thureen, and Oliver Butler) in association with the Ontological Theater. Stoneham Theatre's Producing Artistic Director Weylin Symes will direct.

Set in a recreation center turned police station, Buddy Cop 2 keeps the audience bouncing around a plot that is in a perpetual state of unease, with quirky twists and turns that end up leaving everyone hanging. There's mystery, flirtation, guffaws, compassion, Christmas spilling over into the new year, and a dark cloud looming overhead that very much sounds like a helicopter.

The cast will feature Melissa Baroni as Officer Darlene Novak, Paul Richard Yarborough as Officer Terry Olsen, Jerry Bisantz as Officer Don McMurchie, and Emily Sheeran, who will double as the dying Skylar and Brandi, the Governor's daughter.
