An explosively topical play about institutional corruption in Northern Ireland.
Caroline is a detective Sergeant in the Royal Ulster Constabulary. Used to doing battle against the ingrained sexism of her male colleagues, she begins to suspect something much worse: systematised collaboration between the RUC and the loyalist terrorists of the UDA.
Gary Mitchell’s play The Force of Change was first staged at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2000. It won the George Devine Award, and Gary Mitchell won the 2000 Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright.
‘His best play to date, a high-voltage, disputatious examination of the Royal Ulster Constabulary’
