Arctic Oil by Clare Duffy – Traverse Theatre

Written by the award-winning 2015 IASH / Traverse Theatre Creative Fellow Claire Duffy and directed by Traverse Associate Director Gareth Nicholls, (Ulster American), Arctic Oil opens on 6th October at the Traverse, featuring Brennan Artists’ Neshla Caplan.

On a remote Scottish island, an estranged mother and daughter are at loggerheads over how best to save their children. While Ella fights for her son’s future, her mother Karen is terrified that Ella’s environmental activism will her get killed. Trapped together until one of them gives in or lashes out, it quickly becomes clear that not all mothers know best.
