★★★★★ “A charming and comically tragic hours’ worth of entertainment” The Public Reviews

“Light, sweet, witty” Time Out

“Huge inventiveness and ingenuity… uplifting and poignant” The Stage

“Not only funny, but spectacularly, wilfully silly… tinder push the envelope as far as they possibly can… it is inspired stupidity” The Londonist

Dog sleds, icy adventure, and a bitter race to the end; The Last March is the thrilling comedy of Captain Scott’s last daring bid to conquer the South Pole.

Comically tragic or tragically comic, we tell the story of England’s proudest and most foolhardy gentleman adventurer in his life or death race against the merciless Norwegian explorer, Amundsen.

Using spirited humour, frantic physicality and of course bucket loads of revitalising tea, tinder theatre will tell the story – from its hopeful beginnings full of promise and adventure, to its bleak snow swept end.

This time, history is written by the losers…
