ABOUT THE PLAY

 
COMEDY

 

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, Councilor 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 characterized by ruthless PR guru Joe Boxberg.
