Circle City New Play Fest: Tectonic Mélange

Circle City New Play Fest: Tectonic Mélange

Presented by The Geeky Press at Speak Easy Downtown

Written by Deborah Yarchun

Tara is a petroleum geologist. She’s scouting areas for possible oil, trying to find overlooked areas where companies will want to drill. That’s how Tara meets Liz, Andy, and the other hundred or so residents of Whisper, North Dakota. Oil money could change their lives. It could reopen the school, buy a new fire truck… or, possibly, ruin everything. As Tara gets closer to the people in Whisper and closer to the possibility of drilling there, the difference between what’s right and what isn’t wrong becomes all the more important.
