Inspired by the testimonies of over 100 BP Disaster survivors, Immortalis Vox dramatises the terrible effects the oil 'spill' has had on Louisiana.
A fierce criticism of corporate power, this play explores the destructive impact the petrochemical industry has had on the environment and people.
On April 20th, the BP oil drilling rig Deepwater Horizon disaster exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 and injuring 100. Millions of barrells of oil leaked out over the ensuing months, endangering the wild and human life of Lousisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
