DO NOT GO GENTLE

by Patricia Cornelius

In this wondrous play, Scott's ill-fated Antarctic expedition is a metaphor for the elusive journey of five elderly people facing the final leg of their journey. Scott's passage across the Antarctic, as he confronts a landscape of ice and perilous weather, powerfully parallels their courage and inevitable defeat. Yet with unbroken spirit, this funny, angry, defiant group grapple with the big questions of life as they rage against the dying of the light.
