Is the settling of scores a necessary step towards restoring peace after a bloody conflict? Set against a war-crimes trial at the end of a civil war, Fall explores the thin line between justice and revenge. Fall is the last play in a trilogy by Zinnie Harris that examines the transforming effects of war. Solstice and Midwinter were performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2004/05, and are also published by Faber.
