Description

IS BLOOD THICKER THAN OIL?

How do we manage our finite resources? Is there any resource more infinite than love?

From the stage of London’s Almeida Theatre, a hotbed of new writing, hails this epic, explosive play about empire, history, and motherhood. It charts the lifespan of one of our most precious commodities. Starring Hayley McElhinney (Doctor Doctor, The Cherry Orchard) with a formidable ensemble of actors under the direction of Adam Mitchell (When the Rain Stops Falling, Every Brilliant Thing), Oil is an exciting and relevant new work for our time and place.

1886, Cornwall, a family are preparing for dinner by candlelight. A salesman arrives at their farm to demonstrate a wonderful new discovery - the kerosene lamp. The age of oil is beginning.

Spanning 150 years and traversing the globe through Tehran, Hampstead, Baghdad, and then back to Cornwall, Oil is the time travelling story of mother May and her daughter Amy as they navigate a shifting world.
