Hello Shackleton fans and Antarctic enthusiasts!
As you know, I'll be bringing my one-man show, Shackleton's Antarctic Nightmare, to New York this Fall, and I want to invite you to a special send-off  performance here in Portland just before we head back east. I will be telling the true, epic story of British Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton and the 1914 voyage of The Endurance.

Shackleton's dream of being the first man to cross the Antarctic continent became a nightmare when his valiant ship was trapped in the pack ice of the Weddell Sea and crushed by the pressure of the ice. The tale of how he and the 27 men of the British Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition survived on the ice floes and eventually came to safety is one that has fascinated me for as long as I can remember.

This is a story that is very near and dear to my heart, as my dad and I shared a life-long interest and passion for the Shackleton saga, and I hope to weave a few threads about my father into the telling.  This show has sold out every performance of its three runs in Portland, Oregon, and I am honored to have been invited to bring it to New York

Thanks for your support, and may the narrative be with you!

Hope to see you all at Hipbone for this special show.

Hipbone Studio is an intimate space, ideal for this kind of a telling, but the seating is limited, so I encourage you to buy your tickets quickly, before they sell out.
