The Fence in its Thousandth Year

Howard Barker

PaperBack (05 Jun 2005)

The Fence in its Thousandth Year was inspired by the long distance fence whilst it was under construction in the Gaza to separate the Palestinian and Jewish communities.
Set in a world of rising frontiers and illegal immigration, The Fence uses powerful poetic language, provocative ideas and rich, dark humour to build a compelling epic about scandal in a ruling monarchy and its subsequent downfall.
At the heart of this tale is the intensely personal story of a blind boy’s struggle to discover his true identity in a world where nothing is what it seems...

The Fence, produced by the Wrestling Company, opened at the Birmingham Rep in June 2005, followed by a UK tour.
