On the 20th April 2010 the Macondo oil well in the Gulf of Mexico exploded, causing what has been described as the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry. Two years later, the story and the huge impact of the disaster is still on-going. Double Fringe-First and Total Theatre Award winners Look Left Look Right investigate the true cost of the BP Oil Spill and its impact on our daily lives. Told by those directly affected, this compelling documentary play explores word for word the disaster and its consequences. Following on from the success of The Caravan and You Once Said Yes, Look Left Look Right return to the Edinburgh Fringe with their distinctive style of verbatim theatre. Presented as part of the Escalator East to Edinburgh Programme.
