SPILL Written by Leigh Fondakowski Created in collaboration with visual artist Reeva Wortel  On April 20, 2010, the massive Deepwater Horizon oil rig, leased by British Petroleum (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 in what President Barack Obama called "the worst environmental disaster America has ever faced." Spill is based on over 200 hours of interviews collected in the aftermath of this spill. This can't-miss theatrical event goes beyond the headlines to tell vivid personal stories from all sides of the country's greatest environmental disaster. Leigh Fondakowski was the Head Writer of The Laramie Project and is a member of Tectonic Theater Project. She is an Emmy nominated co-screenwriter for the adaptation of The Laramie Project for HBO, and a co-writer of The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later. Her latest play SPILL premiered at Louisiana State University's Swine Palace in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in March 2014. Spill has its own magnetic, galvanizing power; you emerge from the theater shaken and challenged, your drifting consciousness of an issue of grave national concern slapped into focus. -THE WASHINGTON POST Dramaturgy by: Sarah Lambert, Kelli Simpkins, and Reeva Wortel SPILL was originally commissioned by the Center for the Arts at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut  Additionally Commissioned and Developed with support from The Ensemble Studio Theatre / Alfred P.
