The Kingsnorth Six by Julia Hollander is a docu-drama about the Greenpeace activists who broke into the Kingsnorth Power station in October 2007, climbed the chimney and painted on it the slogan 'Gordon bin it', in a protest against government proposals to build new coal-fired power stations.
A year later, they were taken to court for criminal damages. In a ground-breaking decision, the activists were acquitted on the grounds that the damage they had caused to the station was minimal in contrast with the damage they had prevented to property around the world caused by climate change, to which coal-fired power stations like Kingsnorth are contributing.
The play intercuts the climb of the chimney with the court case, and is dramatised using court transcripts.
The play was broadcast on BBC Radio 4,
