‘The Border Game‘ playwright Oisín Kearney tells tales from the border!
With the world opening up again slowly but surely, how does an evening out at the theatre sound?
I can promise you one thing, should you decide to take a run up to Belfast and pick up a ticket for ‘The Border Game’ in the Lyric Theatre, you won’t be disappointed.
Certainly if you watching anything that’s simultaneously hilarious and deeply tragic and also brilliantly acted.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. The reviews are in and the critics agree.
Warrenpoint playwright, director and filmmaker, Oisín Kearney, co-wrote ‘The Border Game’ with his writing partner Michael Patrick, after travelling the length of the Irish border and listening to around 100 people tell their stories about how it has impacted on their lives.
The play is based on a compilation of some of those stories. It deals with the issues the two protagonists, Sinead and Henry – played wonderfully by Liz Fitzgibbon and Patrick McBrearty - faced as a young couple, of differing political and religious backgrounds, growing up on the border.
