Overview

Join us as we mark the 50th anniversary of a seismic turning point in the history of Northern Ireland: Bloody Sunday. Ciaran Byrne directs a star-studded cast in a reading of Bloody Sunday: Scenes from the Saville Inquiry, a play based on direct testimony, edited by Richard Norton-Taylor. On Sunday January 30, 1972, 13 civil rights marchers were shot dead, and another 13 wounded by British soldiers during a peaceful anti-internment march in Derry, Northern Ireland. The Saville Inquiry was set up as part of the Northern Ireland peace process in 1998, hearing evidence from over 1,000 witnesses and participants, and lasting until 2004.
