The Police Interview

In this 10 minute play a man is at a police station for a job interview. He believes he is to be interviewed for a position in the watch-house as a jailer. The Detective Senior Sergeant interviewing him is under the mistaken belief he is interviewing the man as the main suspect in an arson investigation. The officer’s inept sidekick is a probationary constable who quickly establishes himself as more of a hindrance than a help.
