'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. Critically acclaimed and nominated for the Writers Guild of Ireland Best Theatre Script award 2017, the play is based on an oral archive of serving RUC and An Garda Síochána officers. Fusing theatre and film, the production looks at the person behind the uniform and the different experiences of two individuals on either side of a line in the ground.  

Green & Blue finds a natural home at Seamus Heaney HomePlace, given the history of the site of the venue. This production will be followed by a facilitated discussion.

'Green & Blue is a thoughtful, challenging and entertaining dramatisation of an oral history, casting light on police officers' lives as they saw it.' - Culture Northern Ireland
