in 2007 year two leading barristers: Philippe Sands QC (for the prosecution) and Julian Knowles (for the defence) tested the evidence of the grounds for an indictment of the British Prime Minister for the crime of aggression against Iraq. They examined a number of distinguished witnesses, including MPs, diplomats, international lawyers, civil servants, UN officials, policy advisors, intelligence experts and journalists.

The arguments and testimony gathered, edited into a play by Richard Norton-Taylor, examine the criminal implications of the British Government’s decision to use force against Iraq, and allow the audience to decide whether an indictment in this case is proven.

Called to Account opened at the Tricycle Theatre, London in April 2007.

Reviews:

“should be seen by everyone in this country.” -  Independent on Sunday
“…at least the theatre has now called Blair to account…there is no doubt about the evening’s importance.” - The Guardian
“This is theatre both as confected sensation and as direct civic engagement.” - Financial Times
