Do not miss this play -- important themes (political and personal), well-developed and magnificent acting. Bravo!

Outstanding play, production, cast, and Olney staff associated with the theatre space. Box Office staff a bit robotic.

Oil is a thoughtful, intriguing drama which stays with you long after the performance ends. The actors are excellent especially the two playing May and Amy. Even though the 1st act runs long, it doesn't feel like it. Highly recommend it.

Excellent cast in a mind bending plot of family and national domination. Quite avant-garde and not a “light fun evening.”
I really enjoyed it since it entertained and challenged my brain.

I love Olney Theatre - easy to get to, easy to park. The play is put together well. It is really two stories - one about oil and its impact but the other is about a mother/daughter relationship. It was good, just not fantastic - thus the 4 stars

Oil is a fascinating study of the relationship between a mother and daughter played out against a story arch about the role of energy in societal evolution. If you even think you like theater you should see this. If you are an aspiring...continued

The acting was good but from my seat it was very hard to hear clearly, and the dialogue was too important to miss. And, frankly, I didn't find the story compelling.
