Sink the Belgrano! is a 1986 satirical play by English playwright Steven Berkoff about British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's decision to torpedo the Argentinian ship General Belgrano, as it was purportedly retreating during the 1982 Falklands War between the United Kingdom and Argentina.[citation needed]

According to the British Council, Sink the Belgrano is among Berkoff's "lesser-known works", along with his other "controversial responses to recent events" such as "his poem Requiem for Ground Zero in 2002."[1]
