Ohio University Student Writes Fracking-Themed Play

From WOUB:
Hydraulic fracturing, a method of natural gas extraction that has raised environmental concerns, has been the subject of state and national news almost daily.
Jeremy Sony, a third-year M.F.A student at Ohio University, examines the topic from a new angle in his thesis play Frackture.
Sony’s play focuses on Mitch and Zack Walston, brothers from a small Ohio town facing emotional turmoil after the loss of their older brother.
The two try to decide what to do with the vast expanse of their brother’s land left to them.
If they choose to “frack” (a colloquial term for hydraulic fracturing), they will sell the land to a large corporation for a big payday, but possibly at the expense of the environment.
