A young couple in a war-torn country are stranded on opposite sides of a newly-militarised border, in a sinister yet absurdly funny satire.





"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. A shorter version of An Incident at the Border was first seen at Oran Mor in Glasgow as part of David MacLennan's acclaimed A Play, A Pie and A Pint series of lunchtime theatre. It was recently recorded and broadcast on BBC Radio 4."
