Broadcast the day after the verdict in the Mladic trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, this drama gives us a fascinating glimpse into the procedures of the ICTY during its final trial, based on the first hand experiences of the playwright and using verbatim tribunal transcripts.

A play about the experience and meaning of the Hague Tribunal, a modern day Nuremburg, which, as it comes to an end, is perhaps more challenged and politically besieged than at any time since it opened, subject as it is to the conspiracy-theorising of internet echo-chambers and the 'post-truth' world.
