Green and Blue play to be staged Seamus Heaney Centre

Written by Laurence McKeown
Directed by Paula McFetridge
Featuring James Doran and Vincent Higgins
Tuesday 17 October – 7.30pm | Tickets: £5
Green & Blue explores the painful and humorous realities faced by
the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the
conflict. Critically acclaimed and nominated for the Writers Guild
of Ireland Best Theatre Script award 2017, the play is based on an
oral archive of serving RUC and An Garda Síochána officers. Fusing
theatre and film, the production looks at the person behind the
uniform and the different experiences of two individuals on either
side of a line in the ground.
Green & Blue finds a natural home at Seamus Heaney HomePlace,
given the history of the site of the venue. This production will be
followed by a facilitated discussion.
‘Green & Blue is a thoughtful, challenging and entertaining dramatisation
of an oral history, casting light on police officers’ lives as they saw it ’
