Tickets On Sale for World Premiere of EMINENT DOMAIN at Omaha Community Playhouse
Tickets for the world premiere of local playwright Laura Leininger-Campbell's Eminent Domain, which opens Omaha Community Playhouse's 93rd season, are now on sale through the OCP box office. The production will run August 25 - September 17, 2017 in OCP's Howard Drew Theatre.
Does oil run thicker than blood? Or will a pipeline splitting the prairie tear a family apart? A 2016 Eugene O'Neil 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. Disclaimer: Contains adult language
