In total, including applications from non-European countries, asylum applications made to EU countries between 1986 and 1991 rose by 481 per cent (Gregou 2005: 10). 8 In addition to this, during the mid-1990s the EU was heavily engaged in discussion over the process of enlargement – explicitly which nations should and which should not be included in the EU. It is these issues that occupy central positions in the narratives of both Europe and Pentecost. The action of Pentecost (Royal Shakespeare Company, Other Place, 1994) takes place in an abandoned church in a Southeastern European country, only referred to as ‘our country’.

This evokes the idea that while Srebrenica is a factual account, specifically a verbatim re-enactment, it is an edited and theatricalized version of the original trial. This displacement of the original testimonies into a theatrical context allows Srebrenica to be seen as evidence within itself and thereby represents an important contribution to the debates generated by the EU’s response to the Bosnian conflict. Originally, Srebrenica was played as a prologue to the revival of Norton-Taylor’s Nuremberg (1996).
