On The Border

‘Once there was a girl called Lost, whose voice was frozen in her throat’

On the Border weaves together personal stories, family history and political & social changes on the Northern Irish border through four generations. Threaded together by a unique and charming new folk tale written specifically for the show, we follow a young girl called Lost as she seeks to find her voice. Emily O’Shea Company’s new work takes you on an emotional roller coaster tying together the partition of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, civil rights movement and the fight for women’s rights, with the joy and humour of everyday interactions.The evening will culminate in an optional Irish Ceilidh.
