On a farm on the border, a fence needs repair after being destroyed by vandals. When Sinead finds Henry hungover in her field, she ropes him in to help. But re-building a fence is more complicated than it seems. What begins as a simple task soon turns to talk of their past, a reliving of old memories, and a relentless competition to come out on top.

“A powerful new play... a sharp political satire...moving, honourable.”

The Guardian

“A sparky response to the centenary commemorations...guaranteed to kick off thorny conversations.”

The Irish Times

“Further proof of a new vitality and intelligence in Northern Irish theatre comes from Michael Patrick and Oisín Kearney’s The Border Game”
