Terra Nova, Based on Capt. Robert Falcon Scott’s 1911-1912 expedition to be first to discover the South Pole. Blending devised scenes and historical fact drawn from Scott’s journals and letters, the play’s action merges scenes of the explorer and his men at various stages of their ordeal, with flashbacks of Scott‘s young wife and fateful glimpses of his Norwegian rival, Roald Amundsen, whose party beat Scott to the South Pole. A journey of heroism and honor, in spite of its failure, this play will keep you in suspense to the end.
