    1. Shout out to Mrs. Danvers for bringing this moving play to my awareness! Although I don't remember which book she reviewed mentioning this haunting play.

    2. I'm acting in a staged reading of this in a month. I find it hard to separate my opinion of the play from thoughts about the part and the challenges of making this come across without sets and costumes and big props. Even moreso, it's hard to separate the quality of the play from the true story, which is epic and amazing and stupid all at once. Robert Falcon Scott's days-too-late quest for the South Pole has to be one of the prime all-time examples of courage and bravery pursued to the point of [...]

    3. I saw the play years ago and immediately purchased the written play knowing that I would want to read it some day. I finally did. It is a tragic story but poetically crafted. An heroic figure stays true to himself, but his sense of honor ultimately leads to his death and the death of his men. He simply didn't know how to be any differentHO (I don't usually use messaging tags. I'm not sure what has befallen me)Terra Nova is an unfortunate title -- sounds sci-fi to me.

    4. A wonderful play dramatizing the fatal polar expedition led by Robert Falcon Scott. As the narratives moves backwards and forwards in time, a classical feel develops as the figure of Roald Amundsen functions similarly to a Greek chorus, appearing to interrogate Scott as the tragic figure. This is a script that makes for a gripping evening of theatre.

    5. I was reminded of this play by the Titus Oates bits in The White Darkness, a very different tale of the Antarctic that is also more than a bit surreal, and had to revisit it. It is as good as I remembered it, hard and faceted and cutting and perfect.

    6. A great play. I'd love to be involved in this if my local theater troop ever decided to put it on.

    7. My favorite play, about how Englishman Robert Scott missed discovering the South Pole by a month thanks to Norwegian Roald Amundsen.

    8. An outstanding play about the true story of Captain Scott's trip to the south pole. I loved every bit of this. :)
