Antarktikos (World Premiere)
By Andrea Stolowitz, directed by Sheila McKenna. Antarktikos is a mind-bending play about heroism, saying goodbye, and moving forward. 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.
