Musical Notes

The award-winning 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.

☆☆☆☆ Profound and politically charged – The Stage

Paula McFetridge’s bold yet delicate production teases out the humanity behind the uniforms, the trust and distrust.  The terror and brutalities are palpable, but there are many moments of humour, and many more of understanding and empathy, as Higgins and Doran, in strong, well judged performances, Communicate initially on crackly radios across the invisible Border in a field.  
Deirdre Falvey – Irish Times

This accounting of the reality of people’s experience has depth and intelligence, as well as a stark dramatic impact.  Its understanding and insight provides a certain balm for this troubled subject.
Katy Hayes – Irish Independent
