Alan is an American Public Relations guru. He knows how to win friends and influence people. He knows how to seduce women. He has worked for George Bush (nos. 1 and 2) and now works for Big Oil - and any connections between the current US government and the oil industry Alan has done his best to obscure. (The fact that the invasion of Iraq was announced initially as ‘Operation Iraqi Liberation’ - O.I.L. - was not his fault.)
At a charity dinner for the rainforest, he meets and falls for Grace, a lifelong environmental activist. An ‘intervention’ for Grace’s alcoholic brother, Charlie, a former Presidential hopeful, seems an ideal opportunity for Alan to impress Grace with his green/moral credentials.
But also present are a couple whose marriage is disintegrating, and Charlie’s estranged wife Nancy (who just happens to be a director of a multi-national oil company), and the evening descends into chaos amid attempted seductions, revelations, and heated political debate.
Greenwash is an up-to-the minute comedy about public and private deception; about sex, lies and climate change.
