Urgent, touching and sometimes wrenchingly funny, Borders uses two alternating monologues to comment on one of the greatest crises of our modern time.
One voice is that of a lauded war photographer--a man whose pre-9/11 audience with Osama bin Laden has moulded his career. The other voice, that of a nameless young Syrian woman-- a woman 6 months pregnant, adrift in the Mediterranean on an ageing fishing boat which is swiftly sinking under the weight of the refugees it carries.
Henry Naylor’s incredible Borders made its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe where it won both a Best of Edinburgh Fringe Award and a Fringe First. The play has since had multi performances in North America before landing at London’s own Arcola Theatre for its extremely limited run.
