Someone to Blame archiveIn 2004, at the age of 17, Sam Hallam was tried and convicted of murder in a London street fight. But he maintains that he wasn't even there. With little education and no funds, Sam was at the mercy of the justice system and two eye-witnesses, one of whom retracted his accusation in court, and another who admitted in court that when she accused Sam, she had been looking for 'someone to blame.' He has so far spent the last 7 years in prison. David Mercatali and writer Tess Berry-Hart have produced a verbatim piece of theatre using police interviews, court transcripts and independent interviews.
