A new play from Scotland’s site-specific theatre specialists Grid Iron which investigates the most controversial industry in Scotland – oil.
Focusing on the lives of offshore workers and the choices they make to work on the industrial islands of the North Sea, Crude also travels to the Niger Delta and the Arctic Circle to look at the global impact of oil production and its human and ecological cost.
Crude traces not only the history of oil but also our huge, addicted reliance on the by-products of black gold: our cars, our aeroplanes, our plastics that surround and almost literally wrap everything we do.
Crude: an exploration of oil. Rooted in the local. Encompassing the global.
"Grid Iron is not just a Scottish national treasure but one of the companies that has shaped British theatre over the last 20 years.”
“We are fortunate in Scotland to have one of the best exponents of the site-specific genre in the world in Grid Iron.”
“Grid Iron are surely now one of the most sophisticated site-specific theatre makers in Europe”.
