Borders / 26-28 May


Borders is a play about a Grindr encounter between two potential enemies, written by Nimrod Danishman.

Boaz and George meet on Grindr. One is in Israel, the other in Lebanon. They're both horny but can't meet physically. Something in their conversation excites them both. The distance, the "enemy", the foreignness, the experience of being gay in another culture. They both fill a void the other has, becoming each other's secret love. As they decide to meet in Berlin, the border between the countries heats up, and they're forced to make difficult decisions.

Inspired by a real encounter between the Israeli writer and a Lebanese man on Grindr, Borders is a story about two people, never meant to meet or connect, who try to form an intimate relationship against all odds. Scripted very delicately and movingly with a touch of humour, it addresses the many complexities of the Middle East reality in which the geopolitical circumstances we are born into dictate the people we can naturally connect with.

Borders premiered at Drayton Arms in February 2022 to a sold out theatre, receiving rave reviews and warm audience response. It was originally set to premiere as part of VAULT Festival 2022 programme.

With critically acclaimed productions of the play in the US, Germany and Israel, this engaging story is finally introduced to UK audiences, with a team that embodies border crossing in their very practice.

Junction Theatre would like to thank Shout Festival and NDT Broadgate for their kind support in the creation of Borders. We thank all our crowdfunder supporters, who believe in this production and are enabling us to take it further. We would also like to thank the wonderful networks we're part of which are making a real change in the theatre industry - MENA ARTS UK and Migrants in Theatre
