How would you feel about sitting in front of that nice old village pub on a sunny afternoon while convoys of 40-ton tankers roll past six feet away?

Deerland Energy's plans to drill for shale gas in the pretty village of Fenstock are going well and the company is expecting big profits.

They can count on the support of distinguished scientists working in university departments funded by the energy companies

And at local level, Councillor Pilbeam - Chair of the Planning Committee - seems very open to lucrative offers

The only slight snag is a ragged band of protesters, reluctantly led by retired academic Elizabeth Blackwood

Surely she's just another 'mad old biddy', as she's characterised by ruthless PR guru Joe Selby?

Or maybe not ...

This new razor-sharp black comedy by Alistair Beaton takes a timely look at the conflicted core of planetary energy and earthly power
