“Cops and Robbers” is a one-man play now showing at the Marsh Theater in Berkeley. It’s an emotionally-charged piece that delves into the details of a fictitious officer-involved shooting in Oakland. In it, you’ll find a variety of characters -- including a pimp, a police officer, a conservative radio host, and a news reporter -- all with their own perspectives and prejudices.
The actor and writer of this play is Jinho Ferreira, an internationally known rapper. In 2010, he entered the police academy. He is now a sheriff’s deputy in Alameda County
KALW’S Rachel Dornhelm spoke with Ferreira in our studios.
