Cultural drama – Green and Blue
'Green and Blue'
'Green and Blue' drama
Award-winning drama exploring the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict.
An officer from the Royal Ulster Constabulary in his green uniform and Eddie from An Garda Síochána, resplendent in blue, communicate via crackly radios until an explosive incident forces them to meet across a field only farmers know the location of.
Focusing on what it’s like to be hunted when you’re protecting a man-made line on the ground, the play looks at the societal and human cost of borders.
Green and Blue is based on real-life interviews with former serving officers and explores the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict.
The play, which took place in the Ardhowen on Tuesday 20 September and in the Strule Arts Centre on Monday 10 October, was very well received. Both audiences were engaged in the after show discussions which offered an opportunity to engage with the Artistic Director and helped increase understanding of our past.
