One of the most inspiring chapters in the western hemisphere is the long peace that has existed between the United States and Canada. This symbolical play was written to celebrate this peace, and is based upon historical facts. All over the world there are borders between countries. They may be rivers or mountains, or they may be no more than lines on a map, but in a time of war, they are ravaged lands, a no-mans lands. Even in times of peace, the guns still look at each other. But between New Brunswick to Puget Sound, there runs a border between two great nations of proud people, individual people, people with their own customs and beliefs and ways, and that border has not one fort, not one ship of battle, not one hidden or useable gun.
