Our Oil Review

Dovetailing the personal and the political, and spanning over 160 years between 1889 to 2051, Ella Hickson's new play Oil is nothing if not serially and seriously ambitious, seeking to provide a kaleidoscopic portrait of how oil has transformed our lives -- but the costs it has also led to, and imagining, too, what the future holds when it finally runs out.
