Shackleton’s Antarctic Nightmare returns as part of the Fertile Ground Festival in an amazing collaboration with Michael Hill of Wetdog Studios and classically trained cellist Laurent Nickel. Together, they’ve created an immersive visual and audio experience.

This is the true story of how Ernest Shackleton and the 27 men of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914 survived on the ice and eventually came to safety. It is a heroic tale of hardship and suffering, courage, determination, and fortitude.

Lawrence Howard has been called the “Homer of Portland” and knows how to take listeners on a journey through the rich landscape of story. One of the original founders of Portland Story Theater, he has a passion for adventure and has created the Armchair Adventurer series. Shackleton’s Antarctic Nightmare launched the Armchair Adventurer series in 2008.

Since 2004, Portland Story Theater is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to making the narrative arts an integral part of Portland’s rich cultural identity and is committed to bringing an authentic story and theater experience to inspire, challenge and expand a sense of community in Portland’s urban environment. www.portlandstorytheater.org/

    It’s already freezing, so it’s the perfect time to recount a tale about a guy who managed to keep himself and his crew alive (though the dogs didn’t make it) while packed into pack ice for months without access to Instagram, Snapchat, or even email to communicate how awesome his adventures were. Thankfully modern-day storytellers can recreate images in our minds with nothing but their…words!

    • PDX Story Theater January 19, 2019 at 4:08 pm #

      Dear DT, Yes, it is the perfect time. Good luck with the contest!

    We had seen God in His splendors, we had heard the text that Nature renders. We had reached the naked soul of man.

    I saw a small theater production of the Roald Amundsen expedition when I was young. This would be an interesting comparison
