Rat in the Skull
Commissioned by the Royal Court in the midst of continuing IRA violence, Rat in the Skull centres on an interview between an RUC inspector and a Catholic man in London, detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. Told from the point of view of an Ulster Protestant, it cast a new, unexpected perspective on the struggle. Actor Brian Cox went on to win the 1984 Olivier award for Best Actor in a New Play.
