GREEN & BLUE
Green & Blue explores the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict.
Written by Laurence McKeown, Directed by Paula McFetridge
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 & Blue is based on real-life interviews with former serving officers.
Higgins and Doran give engaging performances as the men unable to cross a line that only wise men and farmers can see. It’s a simple but effective way of exploring two sides of one conflict. – BELFAST TELEGRAPH
