Public Burning Theatre presents
Borderland is a tender, urgent love story exploring the consequences of a single transgressive act in racially-segregated Oldham.
Straddling the fault lines of religion, classand sexuality, Borderland follows two youngwomen from their first meeting (bloodied and bruised in a school detention room) to their final separation (on the rooftop of derelictcotton mill). Borderland is a provocative and humane look at modern social segregation. It's a play which challenges liberal and traditional values alike.
Borderland is the product of extensive research and interviews conducted in Oldham, Bradford and Burnley.
