SPILL written and directed by Leigh Fondakowski
Alex is excited to announce that he is going to be involved with the upcoming NY premiere of SPILL written and directed by Leigh Fondakowski, founding member of Tectonic Theatre Company and original writer on the legendary The Laramie Project. SPILL tells the story of America's largest environmental disaster. On April 20, 2010, the massive DEEPWATER HORIZON oil rig, leased by BP, and owned and operated by Transocean, exploded and burned off the coast of Louisiana, killing 11 workers and triggering the largest oil spill in history. For 87 days, millions of gallons of environmentally damaging oil flowed into the Gulf of Mexico.
SPILL is based on over 200 hours of interviews collected in the aftermath of this spill. This theatrical event goes beyond the headlines to tell vivid personal stories from all sides of the country’s greatest environmental disaster.
