Kabosh Theatre presents Green & Blue on Bere Island as part of the West Cork Fit-Up Theatre Festival
Written by Laurence McKeown and directed by Paula McFetridge, the play is performed by Vincent Higgins and James Doran.
‘At one point we took on a role that became an identity and that identity now defines us. We’re a uniform, not real people. And rightly or wrongly we now view the world from that perspective.’
Green & Blue explores the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the height of the conflict. Based on an oral archive of serving RUC and An Garda Síochána officers, the production fuses theatre and film to look at the person behind the uniform and the different experiences of two individuals on either side of a line in the ground.
