Shackleton and his Stowaway

Shackleton and his Stowaway

‘When disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.’

Stolen Elephant Theatre are bringing their Sold Out Ed Fringe play ‘Shackleton and his Stowaway’ to London. It is based on the real events of the legendary Endurance expedition to Antarctica. It follows the misfortunes of an 18 year old stowaway who sneaks aboard Endurance. Initially, the stowaway is in complete awe of Shackleton. But this fades by the time Shackleton has gotten them trapped in the polar ice pack – even more so when Endurance actually breaks up and sinks. This leaves them adrift on the ice, hundreds of miles from civilisation.

RUN!/¡CORRE!

RUN!/¡CORRE!

4TH/5TH OCTOBER. IN SPANISH AND ENGLISH


Hay hermanos que duelen, y ese es el caso de Kico, quien reaparece para perturbar la vida de Emma, su única hermana. Kico aprendió a correr antes que a andar. Primero delante de su madre, luego delante de los profesores, y más tarde delante de la policía. Emma, en cambio, siempre fue una niña buena que aprendió a guardarse de los golpes que se rifaban en la familia. ¿Por qué los hermanos pueden ser tan distintos?


¡CORRE! transcurre a lo largo de un año, desde el invierno en que Emma visita a su hermano en la cárcel, por primera vez en mucho tiempo, hasta la primavera cuando las ganas de correr de Kico determinan el futuro de ambos. «Nada engancha más que las malas personas» es la frase que sobrevuela la relación de estos dos hermanos. ¿Por qué? Porque es tan cierta como dolorosa.


There are siblings that hurt you, and Kico, who reappears to disturb the life of his only sister Emma, is one of these.  Kico, who learnt to run before he could walk. First in front of his mother, later in front of his teachers and much later in front of the police. In contrast, Emma was always a good girl who learnt to protect herself from the disputes that racked her family. Why is it that siblings can be so different ?


RUN ! takes place over the time period of a year, from winter when, for the first time in a long time, Emma visits her brother in prison, to spring when Kico’s desire to run will determine both of their futures. «Nothing attracts you like the bad person» is the phrase that hovers over the relationship between the brother and sister. Why ? Because its as true as its painful.

Una comedia sobre la estupidez, que no conoce barreras económicas ni sociales. Porque hay estúpidos en todas las sociedades, en todas las épocas, de todos los sexos, razas y religiones. Pero, ¿nos hemos parado a reflexionar sobre ello?
