Created & Performed by Split Knuckle Theater

ABOUT THE SHOW

Office gymnastics meets daring Antarctic exploration in the unlikely setting of a Hartford insurance office in this inventive and funny piece by the internationally acclaimed Split Knuckle.

Trapped in Antarctica with no hope of rescue, the great British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton kept 27 men alive for two years in the most inhospitable climate on earth.

Almost a century later, in the worst economic meltdown since the Great Depression, Hartford insurance man Walter Spivey relives Shackleton's story as he struggles to save his employees' jobs.

Can one of the greatest leaders in human history inspire Spivey to conquer the corporate world? Two survival stories collide in this inventive and surprising adventure where desks become ship decks and four actors become dozens of characters in a story that spans 95 years and 8,000 miles.

THE ARTISTS

Split Knuckle is a critically acclaimed company that creates dynamic, physical, visually striking theatre from simple materials. Through imagination, text, and movement, we create vast landscapes, vivid characters, and epic stories. We make powerful theatre engaging the audience and performers in collective acts of imagination. Using the expressive power of the human voice and body, we tell stories confronting the wonders and challenges of life in our world.

Split Knuckle is actively developing innovative theatre and we perform, direct, teach, and lead workshops in the USA, UK, Argentina, and other communities around the globe. Our company members trained at the London International School of Performing Arts in the methods of Jacques Lecoq. We also bring our individual experiences from Shakespeare & Company, MFA acting programs around the USA, and many years professionally treading the boards.
