Oil

By Ella Hickson
Directed by Patricia Riggin
October 21–24, 2021

Synopsis

Time travel through the “Age of Oil” with May, a woman who marvels at the glow of a kerosene lantern in 1889, and journeys into the future to work as waitress in British occupied Iran in 1908; then, as an oil executive in 1970’s London; a former Member of Parliament in the desert outside Kirkuk in 2021; and on to 2051, where she lives in a world where oil is now scarce. Will we deplete this ancient resource in 200 years?
