This unusual look at the Marcellus Shale issue centers around a locally-produced play with actors in the roles of a gas industry representative, an elected official, an environmentalist, and a land owner - all grappling with the controversy, misconceptions and decisions surrounding Marcellus Shale drilling. WQED features not only the performers, but their real-life counterparts. Project partners for this production include the Program for Deliberative Democracy, the Unseam'd Shakespeare Company, Pop City Media and the Coro Center for Civic Leadership.
