Theater Date

June 2, 2002


A group of Baltimore cops attempt to take down the drug trade and the major kingpins throughout the area, but their efforts are mostly futile as drugs are part of a larger overall systemic problem with corruption that permeates the city to the highest levels. Cops including Lieutenant Cedric Daniels and Detectives Jimmy McNulty, Kima Griggs and Bunk Moreland struggle to perform their jobs while gangsters including Stringer Bell and Avon Barksdale fight to build their empires. In addition to the police force, street-level dealers, major drug traffickers, politicians, public school teachers, union workers and the media are all ineffectual and complicit to some degree.
