The play takes us to the ill-fated Antarctic expedition of Robert Falcon Scott, blending in flashbacks of Scott and the young wife he left behind in England, as well as glimpses of his Norwegian rival Ronald Amundsen, whose party beat Scott to the South Pole. It is an incredible story drawn from his journals and letters that capture the chilling intensity of the bravery and heroism of Scott and his men.

You meet the love of your life, your destiny, your one true soulmate. Vows are exchanged and happily ever after is laid out before you. So what happens when that soul reveals itself to be someone entirely different that you thought they’d be? In ‘Prelude To A Kiss,’ Craig Lucus’ charming romantic comedy with a twist, a simple kiss turns the worlds of three people completely upside down, and the question of who we love and what that really means is put to the ultimate test.
