COUNTING ICEBERGS (ONE ACT)

by Frances Rouse

An elderly woman, once married to a famous explorer, seeks to find solace through his journals and selective memory. She believes that, with the passing of time, she has accepted past tragedies with equanimity, but her younger selves - her optimistic 20s and 30s, her bitter 40s and 50s - will not let her go. As her life unfolds through conversations, arguments and confrontations, the reality is exposed. She is Elizabeth Cook, wife of Captain James Cook. (Play commissioned by National Trust QLD for reopening of James Cook Museum, Cooktown.)
