“Optimism is true moral courage” -Sir Ernest Shackleton
Two survival stories collide as desks become ship decks and four actors become dozens of characters in a story that spans ninety-five years and 8,000 miles. Office gymnastics meets daring Antarctic exploration in the unlikely setting of a Hartford insurance office in this inventive and funny piece by Split Knuckle Theatre. British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton kept twentyseven men alive for two years in the most inhospitable climate on earth. Ninety-five years later, insurance man Walter Spivey relives Shackleton’s fate.
Featuring Jason Bohon, Andrew Grusetskie, Michael Toomey, and Greg Webster.
