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

Brighton Theatre Company

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 are planning to drill for shale gas in the pretty village of Fenstock, for huge profits, with the support of distinguished scientists from university departments funded by the energy companies, while at local level, Councillor Pilbeam, Chair of the Planning Committee, seems to beopen to lucrative offers. The only snag is a ragged band of protesters, reluctantly led by retired academic Elizabeth Blackwood - characterised as ‘just another mad old biddy' 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.
