Wellspring

 

Review


Multiple perspectives on fracking coalesce in "Wellspring" through the lens of three women in a small Albertan town amidst the boom of industry. Bernadette suffers as the mother in a family hit by fracking’s effects, Gabriella presents childlike naïveté with her exploration of the town’s happenings, and the working-class Rita reveals a business-first tone in her indifferent stance on fracking politics.  "Wellspring" functions as a series of monologue vignettes, with the three characters only seldom interacting directly with each other, but in the same way the town shares air to breath and water to drink, their stories intertwine. Each different take serves a strong narrative purpose too—especially when graphic realities filter through the eyes of Gabriella. "Wellspring" isn’t always the most captivating production, but it’s a well-directed and emotionally comprehensive work that interacts with both the business impetus and the tragic symptoms of fracking.—Kevin Pennyfeather
