Fracked! Or: Please Don't Use the F-Word


Fracked! Or: Please Don't Use the F-Word
'How would you feel about sitting in front of that nice old village pub on a sunny afternoon while convoys of 40-ton tankers roll past six feet away?' Deerland Energy's plans to drill for shale gas in the pretty village of Fenstock are going well. The company is looking at big profits. They can count on the support of distinguished scientists working in University departments funded by the energy companies while at local level, Councillor Pilbeam, Chair of the Planning Committee, seems to be open to lucrative offers. The only slight snag is a ragged band of protesters, reluctantly led by retired academic, Elizabeth Blackwood. Surely she's just another 'mad old biddy', as she's characterised by ruthless PR guru Joe Selby? This new razor-sharp black comedy by Alistair Beaton takes a timely look at the conflicted core of planetary energy and earthly power.

Performers James Bolam (Jack), Anne Reid (Elizabeth).
Author Alistair Beaton. Producer Chichester Festival Theatre. Director Richard Wilson. Design James Cotterill. Lighting Johanna Town. Director Gabrielle Dawnes (casting director).
