The Border is an outrageous Brechtian parable that explores the lines we draw between ourselves and other people, by winner of the Brian Way 2018 award Afsaneh Gray. The clock moves towards midnight. Life is about to be turned upside down for one small town as the border crossing is sealed shut, dividing here from there, us from them, this from that. In the midst of it all, Stranger, a young girl's beloved dog, has gone missing. Will Stranger be found before the border closes, or will he be trapped forever on the “wrong” side? With rumours of dog theft and whispers of runaway immigration, how far will the mayor dare to go in her fight for re-election? Does the refugee boy hold the clue to Stranger's disappearance? As the bickering and bartering over boundaries moves into the eleventh hour, will one young girl change the course of history in her quest to find her dog?
