“Considers [Antarctica] with such acuity and depth…” – NY Theater Now
Neil’s a plumber, but he’s never been a plumber in Antarctica before. As Winter arrives and total darkness sets in he starts to learn how lonely it can be on a base with fourteen other people at the bottom of the world. A play about beer, mistakes, and trying to be something other than yourself.
This fully staged production is years in the making. Blowout first workshopped this piece by Jona Tarlin in May of 2013 and since then, together, we’ve been developing the piece for IRT this fall. With all the inherent and unique challenges of a play set at the South Pole; it is our most demanding undertaking since founding the company a little over three years ago.
