It all started with good news: our community is located above one of the largest natural gas deposits in the world, the Marcellus Shale formation. But this gas can only be extracted by fracking - a controversial method that has so highly polarized friends, families and neighbors that meaningful dialogue has broken down.

FRACK YOU! was written to restore the lines of communication. Presenting both sides of the issue in a way that generates laughter and provides a common ground for people to start a dialogue about fracking that moves beyond “talking points” and increases community awareness of the topic. It frames a controversial issue around personal narratives, humanizing an abstract debate without “taking sides”.
