The Conquest of the South Pole

The Conquest of the South PoleT01908264608
Best mates - out of work, on benefits, hanging out, and hiding in epic journeys of the imagination. Four young men escape the realities of signing on and missing out by recreating Admundsen's legendary expedition in a tiny attic room: one London footstep for every polar kilometre. "Nothing but booze, make-believe and blarney. Sod off to the South Pole." A contemporary classic, The Conquest of the South Pole revels in the complexities of what makes a group tick. Highly theatrical and poetic, this bolt-of-energy play tracks a journey from despair to hope - the weight of the everyday world seen through youthful eyes.
