To Protect, Serve and Understand™ (TPSU) is an Irondale initiative that seeks to foster change in police and civilian interactions, expectations, and accountability. Each TPSU cycle brings together a mixed cohort of NYPD officers and community members who work together throughout a ten-week course of improvisation, storytelling, singing and lots of discussion.

Each cohort is different, and therefore each performance is unique. Our ninth and all-new ensemble cast of community members and police officers will join founding members and facilitators Terry Greiss, Rivka Rivera and Michael-David Gordon for these final performances. Join us for a powerful and transformative evening in the theatre.

Tickets are free, but reservations are required.

Proof of vaccination will be required for all who are eligible to enter the building. Masks are required regardless of vaccination status.
