What happens when a pot grower who lives beside a police station falls in love with the officer that busts her?

Want the answer?

Then head right on down to the Capitol Theatre for tickets to the the world premiere of Cop Shop/Grow Op Saturday, October 26.

The original new play by theatre artist Jeff Forst, starring local celebrity Lisel Forst, celebrates the chaos that results when two worlds collide on either side of the law and the backyard fence.

Cop Shop/Grow Op’s experienced pair of actors each play two parts in this full-length expansion of Jeff’s prize-winning dramatic monologue at the recent UVic 50th Anniversary Contest with The Malahat Review.

The past play he wrote and mounted was Fore-play, his golf team-up with Lisel that packed the Capitol full of laughs for its entire run.

Showtime for the world premiere of Cop Shop/Grow Op is 8 p.m.

General admission tickets are available for $15 at the Capitol Theatre Box Office and online at

Prizes will be given to the most imaginative cannabis and cop-related costumes.

This play is rated PG-13 for its: swear-words; marijuana content; unofficial legalese; and risque double-entendres! In Cop Shop/Grow Op, ‘love thy neighbour’ is taken to the literal extreme.

Will star-crossed love beat the odds, or does it get locked up in the slammer?
