On Sunday 30 January 1972, 13 civil rights marchers were shot dead and another 13 wounded when British soldiers opened fire during an anti-internment civil rights march in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. The initial 1972 inquiry by Lord Chief Justice, Lord Widgery - branded the Widgery Whitewash by many - suggested that the soldiers had been fired on first and that there was a strong suspicion that some of the victims had fired weapons. After a sustained campaign by the families of the victims and in the light of new material collected by the Irish Government, a new Inquiry was set up in 1998 as part of the Northern Ireland Peace process.

Over the past six years the Saville Inquiry has heard evidence from over 1000 witnesses, including civilians, military, paramilitary, media, experts and forensic scientists, politicians and civil servants, priests and members of the RUC.

BLOODY SUNDAY follows the success of the Tricycle's production of GUANTANAMO 'Honor bound to defend freedom', which transferred to the West End in June 2004. In December 2004 it closed in New York.

Richard Norton-Taylor (of The Guardian) and Nicolas Kent together produced the Tricycle's staging of Half the Picture - the Scott Arms too Iraq Inquiry, Nuremberg: the 1946 War Crimes Trial, Srebrenica: the Hague 1996 Rule 61 Hearings, The Colour of Justice - the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry and Justifying War - Scenes from the Hutton Inquiry. Two of them were later staged at the National Theatre, one in the Houses of Parliament, and all five were broadcast by the BBC.
