DESCRIPTION:

A ripping yarn of tragedy, mishap, folly, madness and betrayal, heroism…and ruthless news management.

Peter Arnott’s light-hearted theatrical romp features starvation, scurvy, cannibalism… and some jolly tunes.

Based on the ill-fated 1845 Sir John Franklin expedition to discover the North-West passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific and its extraordinary 170 year legacy. Set partly on the barren ice floes of the Arctic and partly in the stultifying drawing room of Lady Jane Franklin, Unspotted Snow is a ripping yarn – a bold and adventurous tale of tragedy, mishap, folly, arrogance, madness and betrayal, Victorian heroism … and ruthless news management.

Join us to explore and discover the hazy, crazy half-truths, rumours and scandals that besmirched the unspotted snow of the great white north.
