Ireland’s longest running theatre ensemble, Blue Raincoat Theatre Company, return to Galway to perform Shackleton, a story of endurance on the Antarctic’s icy Weddell Sea.

A visual feast and the tale of Irish explorer Ernest Shackleton’s escape from the Antarctic told by an ensemble cast, complemented by original footage and scaled puppetry.

Their ice bound ship, the Endurance, was crushed and sunk, leaving all crew stranded thousands of miles from home. What follows is a unique story of will power, determination and, above all, hope.

Strikes deep into the heart and holds the audience absolutely rapt.’
Joyce MacMillan, The Scotsman
