Third Person in Our Marriage

Kabosh Theatre Company presents “Third person in our marriage” from their Legacy of Conflict series, directed by Paula McFetridge.

Commissioned by Relatives for Justice to mark the release of the Eames/Bradley Report, this short drama examines the sensitive subject of victimhood. A husband and wife are having a seemingly domestic conversation but there is a third person in the room: the voice of the husband’s internal thoughts. This voice proclaims how difficult it is to have a successful, healthy marriage when the presence of a dead, loved one is forever there. It asks if there is a timeline to victimhood.

The performance will be followed by a post-show discussion.


Green & Blue explores 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 & 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
