Green & Blue at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019 - Submitted by Paula McFetridge
August 2 @ 7:00 pm - August 25 @ 8:00 pm
Green & Blue by Laurence McKeown and directed by Paula McFetridge is a show about borders.
It explores the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the Irish border during the height of the conflict.
The play is based on stories gathered from Royal Ulster Constabulary and An Garda Síochána Officers who were stationed on the border.
The production fuses theatre and film to look at the person behind the uniform and the different experiences of two individuals on either side of a manmade line in the ground.
It is a timely production given Brexit is raising questions around the impact of borders and how our fragile peace is at risk.
Over the last three years the show has toured extensively across Ireland, with additional performances in Dresden, Paris, London and Brussels. James Doran and Vincent Higgins are both highly respected Irish actors.
