Stolen Elephant Theatre Shackleton's Stowaway
Shackleton’s Stowaway is based on the real events of the legendary Endurance expedition to Antarctica. It follows the tragicomic misfortunes of an 18-year-old stowaway aboard the expedition. Initially, he's in complete awe of Shackleton. But this fades by the time Shackleton has gotten them trapped in the polar ice pack – even more so when Endurance actually breaks up and sinks. This leaves them adrift on the ice, hundreds of miles from civilisation. But ‘when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, you get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton’ (Raymond Priestley).
