This dramatisation of the final journey of Captain Robert Falcon Scott which blends historical fact and brilliantly devised fantasy scenes shows us what makes a man willing to suffer and even die for an ideal. In exploring the devotion between Scott and his men; the tender ambivalence between Scott and his wife, Kathleen; the soaring hope of the expedition to The Pole and the agony of its tragic end, this complex, engrossing, and beautifully written play is itself a journey to the source of heroism and honour.
