On Tour

Performance Information
OIL AND WATER

Written by Robert Chafe
Directed by Jillian Keiley
Composed by Andrew Craig
Musical Direction by Kellie Walsh

Oil and Water is Artistic Fraud’s theatrical retelling of the incredible true story of Lanier Phillips. Shipwrecked aboard the USS Truxton in 1942, Mr. Phillips was the only African American survivor. What happened to this son of the racially segregated south at the hands of the residents of the nearby town of St. Lawrence forever altered his world, and became a legendary story that still resonates with power nearly 70 years later.

Artistic Fraud’s production features a cast of ten supreme actor/singers, and an a capella score by Andrew Craig that blends the Newfoundland folk tradition with African American gospel.
