The Bronze Age. The Iron Age. The Age of Oil.
The Stone Age didn’t end for want of stones.
Oil follows the lives of one woman and her daughter in an epic, hurtling collision of empire, history and family.
Ella Hickson’s explosive play drills deep into the world’s relationship with this finite resource.
Oil premiered at the Almeida Theatre, London, in October 2016, in a production directed by Carrie Cracknell and starring Anne-Marie Duff.
