Green & Blue explores the painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled Fermanagh-Monaghan border during the height of the Irish 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.
