Pentabus-This-Land-(Soil) (566x800)

A Pentabus Theatre Company and Salisbury Playhouse Production.

Fracking. How far down do you own the land beneath your feet?

An adventurous, thought provoking and thoroughly absorbing new play exploring the impact of fracking on rural areas, its beautifully pitched performances infused with pathos and dark humour.

The terrific touring company Pentabus has a good track record of punching above its weight with brand new shows and here, with Salisbury Playhouse, it explores the impact of fracking in the countryside.

Looking at the experiences of a young couple living in a rural community when their land is opened up to drilling, ‘This Land’ digs down through the history – and the future – of a patch of earth and everything that has and will happen there. How much does where you live inform the person you become? And what happens when someone else stakes their claim?

A story both local and national, personal and epic by rising young playwright Siân Owen (Oxford Playhouse, Theatre 503, Southwark Playhouse, Sherman Cymru), with Pentabus creatively transforming the familiar surroundings of the Foxlowe into something unexpected.

Suitable for adults and older children (14+)
