From the producer of such memorable productions as Freud’s Last Session, Howie the Rookie, Blonde Poison, The Time Machine and Lip Service, comes a different experience – a dramatised reading of Shackleton’s Carpenter, by the indomitable Peter FitzSimons. It is an epic true story of exploration, survival, courage, conflict and the workings of the British class system, through the eyes of Shackleton’s carpenter.
Minor characters do not often get their side of the story interpreted by others. Rosencrantz and Gildenstern (Tom Stoppard), Kate Kelly (The Whitlams) and The Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz in Wicked are a few examples.
Gail Louw’s play sees McNish destitute, living rough on a wharf in Wellington, New Zealand, fighting his demons and trying to come to grips with the injustice he feels he has suffered. This minor character is given a voice!
