It’s the dare of it all…
A gang of friends stand on the precipice, a band of hopeless dreamers the world has left behind. But they’re doing this their way, shoulders back, heads held high, looking out across the wasteland and refusing to fail. They’re going to conquer the South Pole, right there amongst the laundry and the pigeons in the attic.
Written in 1984 in East Berlin, with revolution in the air, Manfred Karge’s play is a wildly anarchic journey into the imagination.
Part of the Everyman Company 2017 season
