In a radical new site-specific work Tinderbox presented seven new dramas by some of Northern Ireland’s leading playwrights. Audiences were taken on a journey through the courthouse, visiting the locations of many past dramas – The Civil Court, the Jury Room, the holding cells, toilets, Judges Room, the Criminal Court and the main hallway. Each writer had been asked to explore the themes of justice and the act of passing judgement.
