Adapted from the book "The Bloody Sunday Inquiry: The Families Speak Out" by Eamonn McCann, this play gives a powerful interpretation of loss alongside the pursuit of justice. ‘Heroes With Their Hands In The Air' portrays the families and victims own accounts of the relentless battle to vindicate their loved ones and themselves during the longest legal proceedings in this country's history.
Throughout, the play includes a range of individual responses to what happened from1972 until now and how their exposure in the media spotlight threatened their journey.
From the same company that brought you the award winning ‘Solicitors', this production, to mark the 40th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, engages with the want for public inquiries when answers are locked up.
