Background Research

~ a work in progress ~
  1. Our massive brainstorming document.
  2. The discussion about fracking is just raging right now and we keep finding examples in the media that draw us in. Here are a few selections:
    1. Pennsylvania Hunting and Fracking Vie for State Lands,” NY Times, Nov. 12, 2011 (thanks, Ross)
    2. The Fracking Industry Admits to Employing Military Psychological Operations on American Citizens,” Business Insider, Nov. 2011 (thanks, Christina)
    3. Boomtown: High paying jobs, no experience required,” Rock Center with Brian Williams (MSNBC), October 31, 2011
    4. Game Changer,” This American Life, July 8, 2011
    5. Down Under the Farm: Concerns grow about Marcellus Shale gas drilling near food production,” Pittsburgh City Paper, June 2, 2011
  3. Googlisms: a perfect starting place for a play we want to be multi-voiced, unbiased, and complex.
  4. Mini-retreats: We had our first mini-retreat in Brooklyn from 21-22 January, 2012. We read tons of fracking news, covered the walls of Cory’s apartment in diagrams, nailed down lists of researchers to contact, and played Fracking Pictionary.
