Beyond Hillsborough

Joanne Halliday, Layla Dowie

PaperBack (11 Apr 2014)

“Know what happened, understand what happened and remember what happened.” Hillsborough Survivor

Beyond Hillsborough is a verbatim play, written and set in 2012, that explores the personal consequences of living with the Hillsborough tragedy.

Following extensive, never before heard interviews with survivors, bereaved family members, politicians, police and journalists, the play interweaves personal narratives taken directly from transcripts to present the truth.

The play is fully supported by the Hillsborough Family Support Group, the Hillsborough Justice Campaign and Hope for Hillsborough. When writing the play the authors also received support from Max Stafford Clark and Jimmy McGovern.

Royalties from sales of this book will be shared between the Hillsborough Justice Campaign, the Hillsborough Family Support Group and Hope for Hillsborough.

‘An incredibly poignant piece of theatre…Beyond Hillsborough is virtually flawless in its execution and incredibly important. It isn’t just that this could go far; it needs to.’ Edinburgh Fringe review
