PATRICIA CORNELIUS’ award winning play Do Not Go Gentle.

Supported by Age Cymru; RSC Open Stages and Chapter Arts Centre Cardiff (a Creative Partner)

In this wondrous play, Scott’s ill-fated Antarctic expedition is a metaphor for the elusive journey of five elderly people facing the final leg of their journey.

Scott, Bowers, Evans, Wilson and Oates are on an expedition to the South Pole. Or are they?

Scott’s passage across the Antarctic, as he confronts a landscape of ice and perilous weather, powerfully parallels their courage and inevitable defeat. Yet with unbroken spirit, this funny, angry, defiant group grapple with the big questions of life as they rage against the dying of the light.

Everyman Theatre Company shares the award-winning playwright’s message across continents and communities.

Funny, poignant, and sometimes sad, this play is about seeing beyond the inevitable ravages of time and celebrating the creativity and indomitable spirit that makes us human.
