The year is 2013 and the domestic energy boom is in full swing. Larry and Barb, two veteran reps with a small oil company, travel to Williston, North Dakota to secure drilling rights on the last untouched parcel of oil-rich land when the arrival of a newbie shakes things up. It’s not business as usual in this boomtown. Williston is a play about generational conflict, the quest for legacy, the social and environmental impacts of industry on small communities, and asks: how far would you go to close the deal?
