Almeida Theatre · 07 OCT - 26 NOV

The Stone Age. The Bronze Age. The Iron Age. The Age of Oil. The Stone Age didn't end for want of stones.

Overview

The Stone Age. The Bronze Age. The Iron Age. The Age of Oil. The Stone Age didn't end for want of stones.
One woman and her daughter. What do you do when you know it's going to run out? An epic, hurtling crash of empire, history and family.

Playwright Ella Hickson and director Carrie Cracknell make their Almeida debuts with the World Premiere of Oil, an explosive new play which drills deep into the world's relationship with this finite resource.
