About the Play:

Finalist for the 1998 Governor General's Award for Drama (Canadian equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize)

Inexpressible Island is a full-length drama by David Young. Based upon the true story of one of the greatest feats of human endurance of this century. In 1912 a Royal Navy scientific expedition was stranded in the Antarctic without supplies or shelter.

Stranded at the end of the world, at the end of the Heroic Age, three officers and three sailors — the scientific party of Captain Scott's ill-fated expedition to the South Pole — burrow into a snow drift and for seven months sit out the coldest, most savage winter on record. A story about human beings maintaining social order in the face of the wildest extremes of nature.

Inexpressible Island was first produced in 1997 by Necessary Angel Theatre at Canadian Stage Theatre in Toronto and was subsequently produced in Canada, the United States, Germany, and London's West End.
