Shackleton and his Stowaway

This new play by Stolen Elephant Theatre is inspired by the incredible true-life events of the ill-fated Endurance expedition to Antarctica. Though the expedition itself would fail its memory would live on as an unbelievable story of survival. This production follows the unfortunate experiences of an 18-year-old stowaway who, determined to join the expedition sneaks on board the Endurance. While the uninvited young adventurer is initially enamoured of Shackleton by the time the explorer has got the crew trapped in the polar ice pack, his hero-worship has begun to fade.

When the ship is eventually broken to pieces and sinks, the entire expedition are left stranded on the ice, hundreds of miles from any type of settlement. What will become of Shackleton and his stowaway?

Phil Gibbins31st January

Superb play, friendly staff & excellent value.

Ian Franses19th January

Really sorry but it was a bit dull with no dramatic tension. The script needed more work. Whilst the actor playing Shackleton did his best not even Jeremy Irons would have pulled it off! We left at the first interval.

Adrian Warrener19th January

Enjoyable play.

Mrs Copeland15th January

First half stilted. Second half much better. Use of set very good

Chris Warner10th January

Brilliantly acted.Although a minimal set , with the acting and sound affects and lighting you really felt as though you were experiencing the Antartic conditions and the difficulties Shackleton encountered.
