Somewhere between Oregon and Antarctica lie several points on a continuum: Susan, a writer at an artists residency at the South Pole; Captain Robert Falcon Scott, leader of the British Antarctic expedition of 1912; and Hilary, Susan’s 21-year-old daughter. When an insomniac EMT named Alex becomes the hapless link among them, time collapses, geographies blend and destinies emerge. 2w/2m, 90 minutes, no intermission.

“Stolowitz’s Antarktikos will continue to haunt its viewers long after a performance of it ends.”

H.L. Hix, Oregon Literary Arts Drama Fellowship Judge

“The seductive setting carries a story that upsets and expands expectation.”
