Oil and Water

Wednesday night in St. John's was the World premiere of Artistic Fraud's new production: Oil and Water.

It was a special night since some of the invited guests included people intimately involved with the story of Lanier Phillips and his time with the people of St. Lawrence after the sinking of the Pollux and the Truxton in 1942.

Phillips's daughter Vonzia was in the audience, as well as two of the rescuers, Levi Pike and Gus Etchegary.
