Actually a play did indeed effect change in law. Someones reference to John Tams reminded me of his song How High The Price?, which in turn was used in the Lee Hall adaptation of the play The Good Hope (JT appeared in the play) The orginal Herman Heijermans 1900 play is based on the true story of a Dutch fishing community whose men were sent to sea in a rotten boat (The Good Hope of the title). It was a campaigning play that led to a change in Dutch law.
