Do Not Go Gentle
Monday 29 May 2023 to Saturday 17 June 2023 (DAILY event)
An all-star cast – Peter Carroll, Vanessa Downing, John Gaden, Josh McConville, Philip Quast, Marilyn Richardson and Brigid Zengeni – joins forces with STC Associate Director Paige Rattray to tell this lyrical and moving story of resilience in the face of insurmountable adversity. This is a modern Australian classic written by a true iconoclast, Patricia Cornelius.
Do Not Go Gentle follows Robert Scott’s historic attempt to reach the South Pole. Battered by screeching winds and blinded by snow, each member of the expedition must face their own fears and failings, as well as hunger, exhaustion and cold that defies imagination. All the while, a shadowy presence pursues them, barely visible on the horizon.
But all is not as it seems in the frozen wasteland, as beneath the blasted Antarctic landscape another story entirely is lying in wait. As the party draws ever closer to their impossible goal, another world becomes visible through the cracks.
