Do Not Go Gentle
Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated Antarctic expedition is Cornelius’s theatrical metaphor for the elusive journey of five elderly people facing the final leg of their journey. Scott's passage across the Antarctic, as he confronts a landscape of ice and perilous weather, powerfully parallels their courage and inevitable defeat.
At turns funny and poignant, Do Not Go Gentle examines the fear of ageing, loss but also the desire to live with no regrets to the very end.
A rare opportunity to hear some of Tasmania’s finest actors share the text of this remarkable and multi-award winning play, from one of Australia’s most acclaimed playwrights.
