Eminent Domain (World Premiere)
Aug 25 – Sept. 17, 2017
Howard Drew Theatre
By Laura Leininger-Campbell
Does oil run thicker than blood? Or
will a pipeline splitting the prairie tear a family apart? A 2016 Eugene
O’Neill National Playwrights Conference finalist, originally conceived
for Shelterbelt Theatre’s Before the Boards series, Eminent Domain
tells a relevant story of a Nebraska family farm threatened by the
construction of an oil pipeline and the ensuing conflict that emerges
within. On the surface, Eminent Domain exposes the hard-fought
battle between Nebraska farmers and corporate energy. Dig deeper and the
greater struggle is revealed: the fight to preserve our Heartland’s
farms and the livelihood of the people who live here. Our most crucial
resource is not just the land we are privileged to attend with cracked
and calloused hands—it is our kin, our clan and our heritage. Join us
for this world premiere of an Omaha playwright’s work.
