Green & Blue

Green & Blue explores the realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict. This new multi-media production looks at the person behind the uniform and the different experiences of two individuals on either side of a man-made line in the ground.

Green & Blue is based on an oral archive of serving RUC and An Garda SÍochána officers. Each performance will be followed by a facilitated discussion.

Green & Blue is a thoughtful and respectful dramatisation of oral history, illuminating the life of officers and their families Alan in Belfast – Slugger O’Toole Full article here

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 Full article here

What is striking is the power of the play to engage the audience with reflections on the border and on identities. Northern Ireland Foundation Full article here
