An Incident at the Border
'When we came for a romantic walk in the park, we didn’t think we would be involved in an international crisis...This side of the line, that side of the line. Does it really make that much of a difference which side I am from?'
When a country's new border is drawn, a couple are divided by the line. Under the rigorous eyes of a brand new border guard, they are trapped in an increasingly absurd nightmare, stuck in between two aggressive nations on the verge of war. A comic new play exploring the imaginary lines that divide us and the severe penalties for breaking them...
The world premiere by acclaimed young playwright Kieran Lynn transfers to the Trafalgar Studios after a sold out run at the Finborough Theatre. It was recently broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
