This thesis is the result of my creative practice-led research into the ethical issues of writing theatre about real events. It is a play and an exegesis that elucidates the theories and processes behind its creation. I argue that the choice to create theatre about real events raises ethical responsibilities that can be addressed by interrogating the writer’s position and the meanings she chooses to make in relation to existing power hierarchies and injustice.
