Atmospheric and timely, Borderland is the stunning début by writer, Andrew Doyle. In the context of Northern Ireland’s current political climate, it strikes a balance between the myths, loyalties and destruction of the past with new hope in an uncertain future. Bickering brothers Sean (Gerard McCabe, Smiley/Complete Works of Shakespeare/Cinderella) and Ciaran (Michael Condron, 39 Steps/Game of Thrones/The Boat Factory) are in trouble. Their work as delivery men has all but dried up as the peace process continues to pressurise their paramilitary clients. In a supposedly peaceful Northern Ireland they are standing at a crossroads, with one last delivery to make and a future to find. As their last ‘errand’ lands on the doorstep the boys bow to curiosity and take a peek.

For generations, Catholic undertakers in Belfast have buried Catholics and Protestant undertakers have buried Protestants. So you’d think now that we have peace (mostly), we could stick to these rules ? But when veteran undertaker, Gerry McSorely, fi­nds his Catholic customers being stolen by young Protestant rival, Basil Gray, an undertaking war breaks out. It gets worse when young Polish woman, Irena Bukowski’s cut-price, newage, interdenominational funeral home usurps them both…
