About the work

The text for this piece is taken from an article in The Independent newspaper of October 12th 1999, by David McKittrick. It quotes extracts from the book “Lost Lives – the stories of the men, women, and children who died as a result of the Northern Ireland troubles”, by David McKittrick, Seamus Kelters, Brian Feeney, and Chris Thornton, published by Mainstream.

First Performance: CoMA, Bath Festival, June 2000
