Green and Blue Play

green-blue-brochure-landscape

At one point we took on a role that became an identity and that identity now defines us.  We’re a uniform, not real people.  And rightly or wrongly we now view the world from that perspective

Green & Blue explores the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict. Based on an oral archive of serving RUC and An Garda Síochána officers, this new 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 line in the ground.

Written by Laurence McKeown
Directed by Paula McFetridge
Performed by James Doran and Vincent Higgins
Designed by Stuart Marshall
Film Created by Conan McIvor
Produced by Kabosh in association with Diversity Challenges
