This extraordinarily inventive play is drawn from the journals and letters found on the frozen body of Captain Scott, the leader of the failed British expedition to be first to the South Pole. Scenes of the explorer and his men at various stages of their ordeal, blend with flashbacks and with fateful glimpses of their successful Norwegian rivals.

Appearing in the cast are: Steve Yates of Millburn as Captain Robert Falcon Scott;  Kevin Carr of Union City as Roald Amundsen; Adriana Spizuoco of Millburn as Kathleen Scott; Dave Bronovicki of Piscataway as Officer Edgar Taff Evans; Noah Stanzione of Long Valley as Lieutenant Henry “Birdie” Bowers ; Adam Barr of Basking Ridge as Doctor Edward Wilson; and Stephen Mennella of Dunellen as Captain Lawrence “Titus” Oates.
