Three leasing reps travel to Williston, North Dakota to get mineral rights to the last big piece of undeveloped land. Leasing reps negotiate with land owners on behalf of oil companies about obtaining a lease to develop the land and typically operate on commissions which are a percentage of the leasing price. Leasing reps are also referred to as “landmen”.
Williston is a darkly funny and scintillating exploration of how business corrupts people and the fine line between commerce and conscience.

Absorbing, funny, riveting and relevant, the play will have the audience on the edge of its seat all evening. With highly relevant themes of environmental issues, Native American land, protest, and patriarchy, this play has a strong message and contains strong language.
