The Colour of Justice archiveIn April 1993, 18-year-old Stephen was murdered near a south London bus stop by a group of white youths who shouted 'nigger' before attacking him. Although five youths were charged with the murder, no conviction was ever made. The Colour of Justice is a dramatised reconstruction of the key moments in the six-month inquiry into the teenager's murder. The two-hour play is adapted from more than 10,000 pages of transcripts taken during the 69 days of public hearings, which also revealed the Metropolitan Police force's racial prejudice and bungling of the case. As no television cameras were allowed in the courtroom, the play provides a rare opportunity to view the legal proceedings and assess the evidence behind the racially motivated murder. The play ends as the inquiry itself did - with a one minute silent tribute to Stephen and to the courage of his parents. Winner of 2000 Barclays Theatre Award for Best Touring Production.
