This critically acclaimed comedy-theatre trio delivers a crazy, enormously inventive and devilishly funny part-lecture part-1950’s horror movie spoof. As Scott and Amundsen begin their 1912 race to the South Pole, the hapless explorer Captain Reginald Cranston Scottt (with three t’s) finds himself on the wrong side of the continent. As Cranston and his motley band set up base camp, a meteor crashes nearby. Deciding to investigate, they set out towards the crash site – unaware of the danger that awaits not only them, but the whole of planet earth.

Join three daring actors as they play over 15 roles as they whisk the audience through a show filled with shocks, blood-curdling terror, hilariously gruesome deaths and glorious, unadulterated, spine tingling silliness. Expect visual gags, verbal wit, giant puppetry, and even a little live music!

‘Outstanding.’ – Chortle UK Comedy Guide

‘A show with a difference. An exuberant mash-up of improvisation, physical theatre, slapstick and satire.’ – The Stage

‘A mad and inspired production.’ – Bristol Post
