“It’s a bit weird to be sitting and drinking with a fit boy with your Dad’s ashes in your backpack.”

15-year-old Rory has suddenly lost her father. When she was younger, he was her playmate and fellow adventurer, creating maps and treasure hunts, pretending to be like the great Arctic explorers – the ‘beardy dead men’: Nansen, Shackleton, Freuchen, and more. After reading his journal, she decides to take his ashes on the trip of a lifetime. She sets out achieve his unfulfilled dream – to go to the North Pole.

This one-woman show is an extraordinary piece of new writing by young UK playwright Tatty Hennessy. With the awkward blend of superior self-assurance and agonising self-doubt, typical of a 15 year old, Rory is by turns funny and moving as she peppers her story with facts and characters from Victorian explorers right through to the people she meets on her travels.

Featuring Laniet Swann (Emerging Talent, Dunedin Theatre Awards 2019)
