Event Description

A Women Center Stage 2013 Festival Event:

SPILL is a play based on interviews with the people of the south coast of Louisiana in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon / BP oil spill, the largest environmental disaster in United States history. Playwright Leigh Fondakowski (The Laramie Project, The People’s Temple) and her collaborator, visual artist Reeva Wortel conducted interviews in the Gulf over the course of a year, talking with people across the political spectrum, from Tea Party Republicans to life-long environmental conservationists, families who lost loved ones in the explosion on the oil rig, oil-rig workers, clean-up workers, politicians, priests, scientists, community leaders, and members of the diverse fishing communities along the coast.

The result of their research is SPILL, a stage play created from the interviews, as well as an art installation of life-sized painted portraits of each of the interviewees. The play recounts the dramatic story of the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon and the subsequent impact of the oil spill on the estuary and marine life, but also takes a close look at the people, the history, and the culture of the people of southern Louisiana.

With Dramaturgy by Sarah Lambert, Kelli Simpkins, and Reeva Wortel.

Monday July 22nd, 8PM
