By the August Wilson Red Door Project, "Cop Out: Beyond Black, White & Blue" is a series of monologues by writers from around the country, based on interviews with law enforcement. The subject matter is provocative, the group says, and it's meant to provoke conversation.

It comes in the wake of successful stagings of "Hands Up: 7 Playwrights, 7 Testaments," from black playwrights about police profiling.
