The Last South Pursuit of the Pole
James Seabright Presents
Adapted from the journals of Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott by G.M Calhoun
Two invincible explorers. One final conquest.
This new drama from a multiple Fringe First winning team charts the incredible journey of two of the world’s most revered explorers. Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott were heroes from a time when the world had just one remaining corner to be conquered – the South Pole.
Based on their actual expedition diaries, this show interweaves the two journeys into a thrilling story of adventure and extreme human endeavour, transporting us to an alien landscape as unimaginably hostile as it is awe-inspiring.
The journey ended in victory for just one team. But could the other cope with being ‘the last south’?
The use of the eloquent words of the explorers themselves gives this engaging production real gravitas
There is much humour, but it is their accounts of the return journeys that are the most poignant
