An Incident with Dave Cotter is a new play written and directed by longtime Butt Drama member Shaun Byrne. It is set against the background of the events of Bloody Sunday when 20 years later a soldier is confronted by one of the relatives about their actions that day. Both characters seek to defend, attack and justify their positions in a hard hitting drama that explores the impact of the shootings on their lives. The first half of the play takes place on a building site in London in the 1990s where new Irish labourer, Fiachra, arouses the suspicions of Dave. In the second half the action shifts closer to home in Northern Ireland where Dave has to defend his actions in court.
