Flop Cop

Friday, September 25th; Saturday, September 26th

7:00 PM

Studio Theatre

Flop Cop

Written by: Laura Cunningham

Directed by: Theresa Murphy

Show summary:

Flop Cop is about a police officer, part of the theatre police, and he trying to stop a playwright from publishing his work because it is really terrible and would be a crime to publish. The show happens in real time; all of the details about time and location are different each performance. The show is located on a bare stage with only the two actors - the police officer is serious and trying to explain the situation to the audience while the playwright is frantic and stressed.

Frank McAndrew Lecture + Awkward Family Photos: The Exhibition

Frank T. McAndrew, PhD, our very own professor of psychology, will be giving a talk about the "Unavoidable Awkwardness of Family Life" at the Auditorium in Peoria Riverfront Museum (Southwest Washington Street, Peoria, IL) on Sunday, September 27th, 2:00 p.m.

Event detail from

As the old saying goes, “You can pick your friends, but you can’t pick your relatives.” What is it about families that can make them so difficult? The plots of countless movies and television sitcoms are entertaining precisely because they highlight the tensions that every family has experienced. Most of us can count on our families when the chips are down, but at the same time, no one knows how to push your buttons like relatives and they never seem to miss an opportunity to do so. This talk will explore how the collision between the psychology that evolved in our distant past and the demands of the 21st century produces the comedy and tragedy of modern family life.

The Museum is offering free admission to the exhibits and the talk. You can contact Amy Roth ( for tickets that are available for students, faculty, and staff. Knox students are welcome to attend at no charge!

The photo exhibition will continue from September 15th-November 15th.
