Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).


Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.


However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.


The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).


Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.

Show details

Synopsis


'When disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.'

Stolen Elephant Theatre are bringing their Sold Out Ed Fringe play 'Shackleton and his Stowaway' to London.


It is based on the real events of the legendary Endurance expedition to Antarctica.


It follows the misfortunes of an 18 year old stowaway who sneaks aboard Endurance.


Initially, the stowaway is in complete awe of Shackleton.


But this fades by the time Shackleton has gotten them trapped in the polar ice pack - even more so when Endurance actually breaks up and sinks.


This leaves them adrift on the ice, hundreds of miles from civilisation.
